Lincoln Gap breaks ground
INDEPENDENT power producer Nexif Energy has begun construction on its $450 million Lincoln Gap wind farm, west of Port Augusta.
The 212 megawatt (MW) project is scheduled to generate between 110 and 130 jobs during construction.
Nexif Energy Australia chief executive Zeki Akbas said the wind farm will operate for more than 25 years to provide green, clean energy for the State.
The project comprises up to 59 Senvion wind turbines and allowances for battery storage of power, and is expected to begin commissioning in late 2018.
