Wind Turbines Bring Green Jobs To Geelong

The former Ford Manufacturing Plant is no longer just a relic of the past with the site being transformed into a wind turbine manufacturing hub.

It is the first time wind turbine components will be made in Australia for over 10 years, and it’s happening right here in Geelong.

The facility will be responsible for the assembly of 100 turbine hubs and 50 drive trains for the 180-megawatt Berrybank Wind Farm and the 336-megawatt Dundonnell Wind Farm.

The development of the hub will help Dundonnell Wind Farm and Berrybank Wind Farm deliver on their local content commitment, supporting the Andrews Labor Government’s Victorian Industry Participation Policy.

The two new wind farm developments are supported by the Labor Government’s Victorian Renewable Energy Targets reverse auction.
