    Acciona Energy starts construction of the 1,026 megawatt MacIntyre wind farm in Australia

    May 9, 2022 - CE Noticias Financieras


      Acciona Energy has begun construction of the MacIntyre wind farm complex, the largest in Australia with a total capacity of 1,026 megawatts (MW) and an associated investment of 1.3 billion euros. The MacIntyre complex consists of two wind farms: MacIntyre (923 MW), owned by Acciona Energy (70%) and Ark Energy (30%), on which construction has already begun; and Karara, owned by the Queensland public utility CleanCo, which will also be responsible for its operation.

      The wind farms will have 180 Nordex Delta 4000 5.7MW turbines, the latest generation of wind turbines launched by the German manufacturer. Acciona Energy will be responsible for the operation of the MacIntyre wind farm, which will be its largest facility in the world and will triple the company's renewable production capacity in Australia. Construction of the complex is expected to be completed in 2024, thanks to an ongoing project acceleration plan to make up for the delay caused by the Covid19 pandemic and associated supply difficulties.

      The MacIntyre complex - Acciona Energy reports - will generate renewable electricity to supply 700,000 Australian homes with clean electricity and avoid the emission of three million tons of CO2 per year, thus contributing to the ambitious decarbonization targets of the state of Queensland. Acciona Energy has a large photovoltaic plant under development in the state at Aldoga and has reached an agreement with Stanwell Corp to supply renewable electricity from this facility to its green hydrogen production plant.
