Iberdrola Starts Construction of First Large-Scale Hybrid Power Plant

After acquisition of Infigen Energy, Iberdrola starts constructing its first renewable energy project in Australia.

The project is located in South Australia and thus far Iberdrola's first solar-wind hybrid plant in the world, with an investment of A$ 500 million.

This renewable facility will combine 210 MW wind with 107 MW photovoltaic technologies and once in operation it will generate enough clean energy to power the equivalent of 180,000 Australian homes per year. In total around 200 jobs will be supported during construction until the project is commissioned in 2021. Thus, Iberdrola is also contributing to foster the post-COVID green economic recovery and job creation in Australia, the company said.

Vestas will supply the wind farm with 50 wind turbines with a 4.2 MW capacity, while Longi supplies nearly 250,000 solar PV panels for the solar plant. Elecnor will construct the storage areas and access roads, as well as delivering the export transmission line, the substation and wind farm Balance of Plant. Sterling & Wilson will construct the solar farm.

Following the acquisition of Infigen Energy, Australia has become one of the major growth platforms for Iberdrola. The group has become one of the leaders in the Australian market, where it now operates more than 800 megawatts (MW) of owned and contracted solar, wind and battery storage capacity, with 453 MW under construction (including Port Augusta) and a project pipeline of over 1,000 MW in different development stages.
