The Biggest Wind Farm In The Country Will Be Built In SA

Sep 11, 2019


A $1 billion wind, solar and battery project will be built at Burra in the state’s mid north.

The project, named Goyder South, will be led by French company Neoen.

According to The Advertiser:

Goyder South would be built in stages, creating about 300 construction jobs for each stage, and 20 ongoing jobs for the next 25 years.

The Goyder South project involves 1200MW of wind, 600MW of solar and 900MW of battery storage.

The wind farm would be the largest in Australia and the battery nine times the power rating of the Tesla battery at Jamestown’s Hornsdale Power Reserve…

The first stage - construction of one third of capacity in each of the wind, solar and battery components - would cost up to $1 billion, Neoen said.

The subsequent stages will be dependent on the $1.53 billion Project EnergyConnect transmission line between Robertstown and NSW which has been proposed by ElectraNet.
