AAL delivers first wind blades for Dulacca wind farm in Queensland
AAL Shipping’s 32,128 dwt multipurpose heavy lift vessel AAL Melbourne has delivered the first 45 Vestas blades destined for the Dulacca wind farm.
These blades, delivered to the port of Brisbane, are 80 metres long and represent the future of energy in Queensland. The Dulacca wind farm is currently under construction on the Western Downs, Queensland. Once completed the wind farm will have the capacity to generate up to 180 megawatts of clean energy and CleanCo Queensland has signed up to take 70 percent to support its commercial and industrial customers on their renewable energy journeys.
Together with RES in Australia, Vestas has secured a 181 MW deal for Dulacca Wind Farm in Queensland, Australia. The project will feature 43 V150-4.2 MW wind turbines which Vestas will supply and install.
The commissioning of the wind farm is expected to commence in the first quarter of 2023.
Through RES’s commitment to supporting local communities, this project will establish a Community Fund of 1.25 million Australian dollars. As a result, the nearby communities of Dulacca and Drillham will be eligible for the funding of local projects, community groups and organisations.
