Mumbida Wind Farm is a 55 MW renewable energy project that was developed by joint venture partners Synergy and Infrastructure Capital Group (ICG). Construction of Mumbida was completed in 2013.
The wind farm is located on farming land approximately 40km southeast of Geraldton in the mid-west of Western Australia.
The project employed up to 100 people during the construction phase and approximately six people are employed in the ongoing operation of the wind farm.
Mumbida Wind Farm utilises 22 x 2.5 MW General Electric wind turbines. The wind farm has been designed to be expanded to 85MW in the future.
The Water Corporation purchases all of the wind farm’s output to offset part of the energy requirements of the new Southern Seawater Desalination Plant.
