(Bloomberg) — Siemens AG, Europe’s largest engineering
company, won an order to supply 100 megawatts of turbines to a
A$250 million ($182 million) wind farm in Australia.
Siemens will supply 32 of its systems to Neoen Australia
Pty Ltd. for its wind farm in Hornsdale in the country’s south,
the Munich-based company said Thursday in a statement on its
website. Neoen’s project will eventually produce enough power
for at least 70,000 homes.
Australia pledged this month to slash emissions at least 26
percent by 2030 as nations set goals ahead of United Nations
climate talks in Paris this December. Critics say the pledge
doesn’t go far enough, with the country’s Climate Change
Authority calling for a cut of 40 percent to 60 percent.
