The order for the Waterloo Wind Farm project has been placed by Roaring 40s Renewable Energy Pty Ltd - a partnership between energy giants China Light & Power (CLP) Group and Hydro Tasmania - which has been a long-term Vestas customer  through three existing wind farm projects in Australia.

Jørn Hammer, senior vice president, Vestas Asia Pacific, said “with our focus on delivering value, including business case certainty for our customer, Roaring 40s has been able to successfully convince leading financial institutions about the long-term viability of the project.”

The order comprises supply, installation, and commissioning as well as a 10-year service agreement. The order also includes a VestasOnline Business SCADA solution. Shipment of the turbines is scheduled for the 4th quarter of 2009, with site delivery and installation to take place in 2010.
