German wind turbine manufacturer Senvion has entered a deal for the Murra Warra project, which has the potential to become the largest in Australia. With 116 turbines and a capacity of 429 MW, the farm is 9 MW larger than Vestas' MacArthur farm, which since 2013 has enjoyed the title of the largest wind farm in the Southern Hemisphere.
The deal was reached with the Australian subsidiary of British developer RES. However, it is a conditional contract for a new model being designed for the project from the manufacturer's 3 MW platform – a 3.7 MW turbine type with a rotor diameter of 144 meters. The closest turbine in the existing catalogue is a 3.6 MW turbine of 140 meters.
