Transgrid to take wind energy from Gullen Range
Chinese wind developer Xinjiang Goldwind Science & Technology has signed an agreement with TransGrid to connect to the Australian grid its 182.5-MW Gullen Range wind farm in New South Wales.
Under the terms of the agreement – the first wind connection deal Transgrid has struck in more than a year - Gullen Range will include 73 units of 2.5-MW Goldwind turbines, to start producing power in late 2013. Construction is expected to be completed in October 2012.
The Gullen Range Wind Farm is Goldwind’s first project in Australia to feature the company’s 2.5-MW permanent magnet direct drive (PMDD) wind turbines, which include fully controllable power converters that eliminate the need of construction of a reactive plant.
