75 wind turbines to power desalination plant  

Seventy-five wind turbines, from up to six wind farms around NSW, will supply power to Sydney’s controversial desalination plant.

NSW Water Utilities Minister Nathan Rees today will request proposals from suppliers to power the $1.7 billion 400,000 MwH green power plant, News Limited reports.

The move comes after a briefing by Sydney water to 22 renewable energy providers about supplying green energy to supply the desalination plant in Sydney’s south.

The project would draw almost one fifth of Australia’s wind-generated energy.

Mr Rees said proposals were open to any provider accredited to supply clean energy to the national energy market.

“As I have said repeatedly, Sydney’s desalination plant will not produce a single kilogram of CO2 emissions,” News Limited quoted Mr Rees as saying.

“We will purchase 100 per cent clean, green energy from the renewable energy market to run the plant.”
