Chinese wind group Goldwind made a big international breakthrough with a deal for Australia’s largest wind project, the 530MW Stockyard Hill Wind Farm that also saw it secure the country’s biggest wind power PPA at a price below A$60/MWh ($44.50/MWh).

Goldwind will pay Australian utility Origin Energy A$110m for Stockyard Hill, where it will deploy its new 3S Smart Wind Turbine 3MW platform.

The deal includes full EPC delivery by the Chinese group, which will also arrange financing for the wind farm in the state of Victoria.
