Allens has advised Goldwind on its successful $110 million bid to purchase the Stockyard Hill Wind Farm Project in Victoria, following a competitive tender process run by Origin Energy.

When completed, the project will comprise 149 turbines, which will generate 530 megawatts of power - enough to power up to 400,000 average homes - making it the largest operational wind farm in the southern hemisphere.

In addition to purchasing the project, Goldwind has committed to sell all the energy and associated Renewable Energy Certificates generated by the project until 2030. Given the size of the project, this is significant for the energy generation and renewables sectors.

The Allens team was led by Partners Andrew Mansour (Energy, Resources & Infrastructure) and Jeremy Low (M&A/Corporate) working with a team of experts across Allens' practice areas including Michael Graves (Real Estate), Scott McCoy (Banking & Finance) and Chris Schulz (Projects).
