Meridian Energy is to start construction of its third wind farm in Australia, with the 131 MW Mt Mercer project in Victoria.
Mt Mercer is a 64-turbine wind farm 30 kilometres south of Ballarat with a construction cost of about $266m.
The plant will add to the Meridian owned-and-operated Mt Millar wind farm in South Australia and its project with AGL Energy to build the 420 MW Macarthur wind farm in western Victoria, which is touted as the largest in the southern hemisphere.
Meridian has contracted with Repower to provide the turbine technology.
