Neoen has signed a power purchase agreement with CleanCo Queensland for 110 MW of wind power.
This is the second agreement signed this year between the two companies following the signing of a 352 MWp power purchase agreement for Western Downs Green Power Hub, Australia’s largest solar farm.
The contract will allow Neoen to construct the 157 MW Kaban wind farm near the town of Ravenshoe, 80 kilometers southwest of Cairns, Australia, to supply renewable energy to the Powerlink Queensland transmission network.
The wind resource in the Far North of Queensland produces an electricity profile that is distinct and highly complementary to the southern regions of the National Electricity Sector.
This is the third renewable energy offtake agreement of CleanCo Queensland since its creation in December 2018 and will contribute to the energy required by CleanCo Queensland to reach its target of 1 GW of new renewable energy generation by 2025.
“We are delighted to be working with CleanCo and Powerlink on our second Queensland project together. This agreement underscores our deepening involvement in the State’s clean energy transition, and we are proud to be supporting Queensland’s progress towards its ambitious target of 50% renewable energy by 2030. We look forward to Kaban delivering an economic boost to Far North Queensland, supporting the region’s recovery from Covid19.”Louis de Sambucy, Neoen Australia’s managing director.
