Siemens has been awarded a contract to supply turbines for a 100MW wind farm in Australia.

The engineering giant will deliver 32 of its onshore blades which are expected to provide power to more than 70,000 households.

They will be part of the Hornsale wind farm, located in south Australia, a €166 million (£117m) project developed by energy company Neoen Australia.

It is expected to generate more than 400GWh per year – equivalent to a fifth of the region annual electricity consumption.

Thomas Richterich, CEO Onshore at Siemens Wind Power and Renewables Division said: “We are delighted that Neoen entrusted Siemens to support the region around Canberra with our environment friendly technology.”
