GE Renewable Energy selected to supply Cypress wind turbines totaling 209 MW for Murra Warra II wind farm in Victoria, Australia. Construction of the project will commence later this year and will be fully commissioned and operational by mid-2022. The first Cypress wind turbine is set to be delivered to the Murra Warra site in mid-2021.
Featuring 38 GE Cypress 5.5-158 wind turbines, the Murra Warra II wind farm will generate renewable energy to power the equivalent of 150,000 homes in Victoria and offset around 500,000 tons of carbon emissions every year, playing a significant role supporting the Victorian renewable energy target of 40% by 2025.
The wind farm, located 30 km north of Horsham, in north-west Victoria, will provide immense benefits for the regional economy, creating more than 400 full-time jobs during the two-year construction period and ongoing employment opportunities in operations, maintenance and project support services throughout its lifetime.
