The 214 MW Yandin Wind Farm will comprise 51 4.2 MW turbines – which could power up to 200,000 homes per year – and will be located near the town of Dandaragan, around 175km north of Perth. The project is expected to cost approximately $400 million and will generate around 150 jobs during construction.  The wind farm will be finished in 2020.

Alinta Energy’s Executive Director of Merchant Energy Ken Woolley thanked everyone involved in helping the project to reach this major milestone. “Yandin will give Alinta Energy a considerable supply of affordable renewable power for our growing electricity customer base. I want to thank our project landowners, the Shire of Dandaragan and Western Power for their support. This is Alinta Energy’s first direct investment in a renewable project, and we’re thrilled to do it here in our home state of WA. Yandin will drive more affordable and cleaner energy for us, and with our gas-fired power stations it will also help us use gas more efficiently. That’ll be good for us, our customers and the environment. The Yandin Wind Farm has been shaped by valuable input from the local community and made possible by a stable energy policy environment in WA,” said Mr Woolley.
