GE nails $130 million wind deal in western Australia

GE Energy and the Australian company Leighton Contractors received a $130 million contract to supply and install 22 GE 2.5-100 wind turbines for the Mumbida Wind Farm. The wind farm will generate 55MW megawatts of renewable electricity for the South West Interconnected System, which the partnership estimates to be enough energy to power approximately 35,000 homes. The Mumbida Wind Farm is a 50/50 partnership between Verve Energy, a Western Australia government-owned utility, and Macquarie Capital.
