Vestas turbine components for Kaban wind farm reach Port of Cairns
The first delivery of Vestas turbine components for the Kaban Green Power Hub recently reached the Port of Cairns in Queensland, Australia. The heavy lift vessel Chipol Guangan delivered the tower sections to Australia from the Tai Cang port in China.
The Kaban Green Power Hub being developed by Neoen will feature 28 of Vestas’ V162-5.6 MW turbines from the EnVentus platform. This marks Vestas’ first EnVentus order for Asia Pacific and Australia, as well as Neoen’s first Australian project with Vestas.
When completed this wind farm will deliver 157MW of renewable energy into the grid and CleanCo Queensland has signed to take all 100 per cent of the energy as part of its growing renewal energy portfolio. Delivery of the turbines will commence in the first quarter of 2022, with commissioning scheduled to commence in the fourth quarter of 2022.
According to the vessel’s AIS data, it departed the Port of Cairns on December 6, after the unloading was completed and is currently sailing in the Corol Sea.
