New Zealand - Update on wind energy "down-under"

Windflow Technology has completed the successful build and commissioning of the 97 Windflow 500 wind turbines at NZ Windfarms' Te Rere Hau wind farm

The wind farm is the first to use New Zealand manufactured Windflow wind turbines. The 97th and last wind turbine was fully commissioned on 1 July 2011. With that milestone behind, the two wind power companies are now focussed on working together on the operating and maintenance (O&M) arrangements for the wind farm.

As part of this focus, the two wind power companies have recently concluded a negotiation under which Windflow has sold much of its stock of spare parts for the Te Rere Hau wind farm to NZ Windfarms. This has helped increase the liquidity in Windflow's balance sheet, and provides a stock of spares to complement the turbine assets held by NZ Windfarms.

As part of these negotiations Windflow has also established a subsidiary service company, Te Rere Hau Services Ltd (TSL), from its existing operation to provide O&M support services at TRH. NZ Windfarms has been granted an option to take over TSL in the event of Windflow becoming insolvent (and various other events). Under this arrangement NZ Windfarms will also be granted various securities over TSL, and other WTL's assets including a licence in favour of TSL to use WTL's drawings, specifications and other documents for the purpose of ensuring it can maintain Te Rere Hau in the long term.

The wind farm, based on the windy Tararua ranges, has been performing at world class levels achieving over 96% availability in 2010 and over 95% availability for the first half of 2011. The Windflow 500 now has over 165 turbine-years of track record and is commercially proven.
