Warradarge Wind Farm

The Warradarge Wind Farm, a significant renewable energy project in Western Australia, was completed in late 2020. With an output of 180 MW, it can meet the average annual electricity needs of about 144k West Australian homes. The wind farm comprises 51 large turbines supplied and constructed by Vestas, 55 km of new gravel roads, 117 km of underground cabling, and 51 foundations requiring 480m³ of concrete.

The plant is operated and maintained by Vestas, with asset management services provided by SynergyRED. The overall environmental impact of Bright Energy Investments’ current portfolio is significant, displacing approximately 623k tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions annually, which is equivalent to taking 210k cars off the road.
