    Acciona Energy expands the capacity of the MacIntyre wind complex for more than 1,000 million euros

    November 28, 2022 - CE Noticias Financieras


      Acciona Energy will expand the MacIntyre complex, already Australia's largest wind farm, to double its capacity to 2,000 megawatts (MW) after announcing the construction of the new Herries Range wind farm, with an investment of more than 1 billion euros. Thus, the overall investment in the complex of 2.5 billion euros.

      The company's aim is to link the end of construction of the current 1,023 MW MacIntyre Complex configuration with the start of work on the new 1,00 MW Herries Range project next door, "which means that workers can move from one large-scale project to the next while remaining in the same area," said Brett Wickham, managing director of Acciona Energy in Australia.

      The MacIntyre Complex currently comprises two wind farms: MacIntyre (923MW), owned by ACCIONA Energy (70%) and Ark Energy (30%); and Karara, owned by the Queensland utility CleanCo.

      The announcement was made during a visit to the Port of Brisbane by the Premier of Queensland, Annastacia Palaszczuk, together with part of her cabinet, to attend the unloading of the wind turbine components of the MacIntyre Wind Complex, already under construction. The MacIntyre Complex (1,023MW) will have 180 wind turbines of 5.7MW.
