Wind turbine components arrive at Kathleen Valley
The first lot of key components for the wind turbines that will power our world-class Kathleen Valley Lithium Project have arrived at site. The turbines will generate 30MW of wind power for our 95MW Hybrid Power Station which is being developed by Zenith Energy.
Arriving at the Port of Geraldton by sea, components make their way to Kathleen Valley via road trains, with many more deliveries to follow in the coming weeks.
Works will soon begin to erect the first of our five turbines. Each turbine is over 210 metres tall and the blades are 81 metres long.
With 46MW of emissions-free power generation capacity, the 95MW hybrid power station is expected to have the largest off-grid wind-solar-battery storage renewable capacity for a mining project in Australia. The power station’s design enables it to operate from 100% renewable energy during periods of high wind and solar resource by switching to “engine off” mode for its thermal components.
We are on track to operate with a low-carbon footprint from the outset at Kathleen Valley.
