CON­STRUC­TION has be­gun on Wind­lab and Eu­rus En­ergy’s $160 mil­lion first stage Kennedy Park En­ergy re­new­able project, near Hugh­en­den in North-west QLD.

The 60MW project will be the first util­ity-scale wind, so­lar and stor­age hy­brid gen­er­a­tor con­nected to the na­tional en­ergy net­work, com­pris­ing 56,000 so­lar pan­els, lithium ion stor­age bat­ter­ies, and 12 Ves­tas V136, 3.6MW wind tur­bines.

The project will take 12 months to build and is ex­pected to be op­er­a­tional by late 2018.

Big Kennedy, the sec­ond phase of the project, will pro­vide up to 1200MW of wind en­ergy and will be a cen­tral com­po­nent of the State’s Pow­er­ing North Queens­land plan.
