The 66 MW Cathedral Rocks wind farm, 26 kilometres west of Port Lincoln in South Australia, is officially open. The $A110 million ($90 million) project comprises Vestas 2 MW turbines. Spanish company Acciona Energy built the project in partnership with Roaring 40s, a joint venture between Hydro Tasmania and CLP Power Asia. "Cathedral Rocks is an important milestone for Acciona's global wind power portfolio, being our first wind farm development in Australia," says Acciona's Brett Thomas. The development will provide enough electricity to meet the demand of the town of Port Lincoln and surrounding districts all year round and save 250,000 tonnes of C02 emissions.
