GE Partners with Downer EDI on $350M Boco Rock Wind Farm in Australia
GE (NYSE: GE) today announced it had been awarded a contract with its
consortium partner, Downer EDI Limited, to supply 67 turbines, build and
maintain the $350 million Boco Rock wind farm in New South Wales,
Australia. In addition to supplying and commissioning the wind turbine
generators, GE will also provide $50 million worth of maintenance
services over 10 years.
The wind farm will be located outside of Nimmitabel, in the New South
Wales Snowy Mountains region, and is permitted for potential future
expansion to 121 turbines. Energy generated by the 67 turbine wind farm
would be equivalent to the required energy needs of approximately 40,000
homes in the region.
