UK-based renewables developer Cubico Sustainable Investments and state-owned company Stanwell have confirmed the expansion of the Wambo wind farm near Jandowae in Queensland, Australia, with the project’s second stage due to begin in 2024.

Stage two will enhance the wind farm’s generation capacity to 500MW, bolstering Queensland’s clean energy supply.

It will result in the deployment of 41 new turbines, adding 254.2MW to the project’s capacity upon completion in 2026.

Cubico Australia country manager David Smith stated: “We are thrilled to announce the expansion of our Wambo wind farm, a significant milestone that will enable the project to provide clean energy to power over 200,000 homes across Queensland.

“Our commitment goes beyond delivering sustainable energy; we are actively collaborating with the local community and landowners to create a lasting impact with community benefit funds that have contributed over $100,000 to initiatives in Jandowae and the Western Downs region.

“As Australia’s energy transition accelerates, we are proud of our leading role enabling Queensland to achieve its ambitious renewables goals.

“With over 2GW of projects in development, Cubico is committed to being a key partner in the decarbonisation of Australia’s energy landscape.”

This follows the ongoing construction of the first stage, which commenced in June 2023. Once complete in 2025, it will contribute 252MW of renewable energy and prevent 1.1 million tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions annually.

Cubico initiated the project in 2019 after acquiring ownership.

The project, a joint venture with Stanwell, underscores the Queensland Government’s ambition to source 80% of its electricity from renewable energy by 2035.

The project will create 200 jobs during the construction period and several full-time positions once operational.
