Located near Jandowae, the Wambo Wind Farm is a renewable energy generation project gaining positive momentum through the collaboration between Vestas and Yurika. The project, an initiative between Cubico Sustainable Investments and Queensland Government-owned electricity generator, Stanwell, aims to leverage wind resources and grid connectivity to bolster Queensland’s clean energy capacity.

During the first stage of the project which includes 42 wind turbines set to generate 273MW of energy, Yurika, a proud partner with Vestas, will play a fundamental role in delivering the electrical balance of plant including design and construction of a 275/33kV substation, 116km of 33KV underground electrical line, as well as two 11Mvar 33kV harmonic filters.

Once operational, the wind farm is projected to supply enough energy to supply the equivalent of 170,500 houses annually, making significant strides towards the region’s net-zero targets. The project is expected to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by a staggering 1.1 million tonnes each year, contributing to a greener and more sustainable future. The project is also set to create up to 200 new jobs during its construction phase.

As the first stage of the Wambo Wind Farm progresses, Cubico and Renewable Energy Partners are actively considering additional stages. The Queensland Government’s Renewable Energy and Hydrogen Jobs Fund is further supporting Stanwell’s share of the Wambo Wind Farm with a substantial $192.5 million investment.

Yurika’s collaboration with Vestas marks a crucial milestone in the advancement of the Wambo Wind Farm, fostering an environment where sustainable energy solutions can flourish. As the construction continues and clean energy generation becomes a reality, Yurika’s involvement cements the commitment to a greener future for Queensland and contributes to a cleaner and more sustainable energy landscape for generations to come.
