  • Diapur

    Diapur is a two-turbine wind farm approximately 19km west of Nhill township in far western Victoria, very close to the South Australian border.

    The wind farm will have an output of up to 7.4 MW and will connect to the existing 22 kV electricity network via the Nhill substation in Western Victoria. The two Vestas V150 4.0 MW turbines have 125m hub height (tip height 200m) and will produce the equivalent energy usage of around 6000 households.

    The planning application was lodged in September 2017 and following the assessment by the Department of Environment, Land Water and Planning, the Minister issued the Planning Permit in March 2018.

    The Turbine Supply Agreement with Vestas and Balance of Plant Contract with Consolidated Power Projects were executed late 2019 with works commencing on site in April 2020 after the approval by DELWP of the amendments to the Planning Permit to capture the procured turbine model.

    The grid connection 22kV line works commenced in May 2021 and are expected to be completed September 2021 to enable commissioning was commencement of full operation shortly thereafter.

  • Ferguson

    The wind farm is a three-turbine wind farm approximately 12.5 km south of Simpson in south-western Victoria.

    The wind farm has an output of 10.8 MW and is connected to the existing 22 kV electricity network in the Southwest of Victoria via two separate connection points (Ferguson North 3.6 MW and Ferguson South 7.2 MW). The three Vestas V136 4.0 MW turbines have 132m hub height (tip height 200m) and will produce the equivalent energy usage of around 7,500 households.

    The planning application was lodged in October 2016 and following the assessment by the Department of Environment, Land Water and Planning, the Minister issued the Planning Permit in April 2017.  An amendment to the Permit to capture the procured turbine was approved in early 2019.

    The Turbine Supply Agreement with Vestas and Balance of Plant (BOP) Contract with Consolidated Power Projects were executed late 2019 with works commencing on site in February 2020.  

    The turbine installation, BOP works and grid connection 22kV line works were completed in the third quarter of 2020 with the Ferguson North connection commissioned and operational in November 2020. Ferguson South was commissioned in April this year (2021) following Generator Registration with AEMO in March.

  • Hughenden

    BayWa r.e.'s first Australian solar energy installation in Queensland.

    This was the first solar energy project for BayWa r.e. in Australia. We oversaw construction of the 20 MW project in rural Queensland. In addition, ongoing operations and maintenance is provided. 

    Facing a tight timeframe and a very remote site location in the Queensland outback, we had to move quickly to establish a team. Our project management teams in Melbourne and Bangkok combined their expertise with local Australian contractors.

    The solar installation in Hughenden was purchased, developed and constructed within only a few months. Demonstrating our extensive expertise in project development and supply chain management, as well as our collaborative business culture and financial acumen.

  • Karadoc

    Australia takes the lead in solar energy generation in Mildura, Victoria.

    We are undertaking one of Australia’s largest ever solar farms in Northern Victoria. Once operational the Karadoc solar farm will produce 112 MW of power, that’s enough electricity to power over 110,000 homes.

    The huge solar farm will be located 35km south of the township of Mildura. Currently under development, we have now secured planning permission for the project and started the construction of the power lines that will be used to transport the energy into the electricity network. Once complete, we will continue to undertake the operations and maintenance of the solar farm.

    Daniel Gäfke, Managing Director of BayWa r.e. Solar Pte Ltd. “The Karadoc solar farm is the largest installation ever undertaken by BayWa r.e and is a great showcase of our ability to procure, design and build projects of this size anywhere in the world. Australia is a very important market for us and this investment is testament to the commitment we have to help increase Australia’s renewable energy capacity.”

  • Timboon West

    The wind farm is a two-turbine wind farm approximately 7 km south-west of Timboon in south-western Victoria, and only 20 minutes by road from our Ferguson project.

    The Timboon West Wind Farm obtained it’s Planning Permit August 2017 then it was constructed in 2018 and commenced operations at the end of that year. Located approximately seven kilometres southwest of Timboon in south-western Victoria, the site was chosen for its undisturbed wind flow with strong, consistent wind speeds, close proximity to the electrical grid, and large setbacks to nearby dwellings.  

    The wind farm has a capacity of 7.2 MW, comprising two Vestas V126 3.6 MW turbines each with a hub height of 87m. The wind turbines can generate enough renewable energy to power approximately 5,200 homes each year, and connect to the existing 22 kV power line that runs adjacent to the site.  

    BayWa r.e. Projects Australia Pty Ltd sold the Timboon West Wind Farm to Epic Energy in April 2019.

  • Yatpool

    A giant in solar energy in Mildura, Victoria.

    The Yatpool solar farm located in Northern Victoria is only 20km away from its sister project the Karadoc solar farm. Once complete, the 106 MW farm will generate enough electricity to power over 100,000 homes.

    Due to be operational by the end of 2018, the project has received planning approval and secured the necessary grid contracts. The next stage of the project is for the local team to undertake the site’s design and the procurement for the solar farm’s construction.

    Daniel Gäfke, Managing Director of BayWa r.e. Solar Pte Ltd. “Once operational, the solar farm will be one of the world’s largest and showcase Australia as one of the world’s leading generators in renewable energy. Australia is a fantastic resource for renewable energy and we hope to help make it a leading country for solar energy generation.”

  • Yawong

    Yawong is a two-turbine wind farm approximately 17 km north-west of St Arnaud in western Victoria.

    The Yawong Wind Farm obtained it’s Planning Permit in March 2018 before being constructed in 2018 and commenced operations at the end of that year. Located approximately 17km northeast of St. Arnaud in Victoria, the site was chosen for its elevated position relative to the flat surrounding terrain which accentuates the strong, consistent wind speeds, its close proximity to the electrical grid, and large setbacks to nearby dwellings.

    The wind farm has a capacity of 7.2 MW comprising two Vestas V126 3.6 MW turbines each with a hub height of 87m. The wind turbines can provide the equivalent energy usage of around 6,200 households, and connect to the existing 22 kV power line that runs adjacent to the site.  

    BayWa r.e. Projects Australia Pty Ltd sold the Yawong Wind Farm to Epic Energy in April 2019.
