“...it’s with great pleasure that we take on a second contract with Goldwind Australia for the delivery of balance-of-plant works across the entire project,” Zenviron General Manager Carl Keating said.

The southern section of the Moorabool Wind Farm will comprise of 57 turbines that will have a height of approximately 171 metres. The entire wind farm will have a total of 107 turbines which will be able to produce up to 1,000,000-MWh of renewable energy annually, enough to power about 200,000 average homes in Victoria.

Moorabool South is due for completion in early 2020, while Moorabool North is expected to be operational by mid-2019.

The Moorabool Wind Farm is anticipated to generate up to 300 jobs during peak construction and up to 20 permanent maintenance positions once it is operational.
