Siemens has secured a contract to deliver, deploy, and commission 32 turbines for the 100MW Hornsdale Stage II onshore windfarm in South Australia.

This follows the original Hornsdale Stage I project, which contracted Siemens in August last year.

Each of the 32 turbines for Stage II will have a capacity of 3.2MW and feature a rotor diameter of 113m.

Siemens' windpower and renewables division onshore CEO Thomas Richterich said: “We are delighted that Neoen entrusted Siemens to also supply the second stage of the Hornsdale wind project with our proven direct drive wind turbines.

“Hornsdale Stage II is a good example of collaborative customer partnership combined with the best technology for the benefit of society, the economy, and the environment.”

Both plants will be bought by French engineering consultant Neoen Australia.

Near the South Australian town of Jamestown, the Hornsdale Stage II onshore project will contribute significantly to the Australian Capital Territory's (ACT) target of achieving 100% renewable energy by 2020.

"Each of the 32 turbines for Stage II will have a capacity of 3.2MW and feature a rotor diameter of 113m."

Neoen global's CEO Xavier Barbaro said: “Hornsdale Stage II is another great example of the global strength of France and Germany working together to provide clean energy for 70,000 Australian homes and new employment, training, and investment opportunities in South Australia and the ACT.”

Installation of the turbines is expected to commence in December this year, while the farm will be operational by June next year.

Under the terms of a long-term service agreement, Siemens will be responsible for service and maintenance once the project is completed.

Once in operation, Hornsdale Stage II onshore windfarm will help achieve carbon neutral targets by selling the energy generated at the site to the ACT Government.
