Tilt Renewables Limited announced that the first wind turbine has been successfully erected at the Waipipi Wind Farm located near Waverley in South Taranaki in New Zealand. This wind turbine is the largest ever installed in New Zealand, both by generation capacity of 4.3MW and size of 130 meter rotor diameter and marks the first multi-MW class wind turbine to be installed in New Zealand since mid-2014. To date, 18 of 31 wind turbine foundations have been procured, the installation of underground 33kV cable reticulation is complete, and all HOkV transmission line poles have been installed. All wind turbine components have been manufactured and have either arrived in or are en route to New Zealand. TLT anticipates achieving commercial operation of the WWF in QI 2021, in line with previous expectations.

When complete, the WWF will be TLT's largest single asset in New Zealand, consisting of 31 x 4.3MW wind turbines with a total installed capacity of 133.3MW, and expected to produce annual average electricity generation of 455GWI1, enough for around 70,000 homes. The wind turbines are manufactured by Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy who is also providing a comprehensive 30-year Operations and Maintenance Agreement, demonstrating just how suitable these machines are for this site.
