Unveiling the Future of Renewable Energy: Cubico and Stanwell Launch Wambo Wind Farm Stage 1 in Queensland’s Western Downs

Cubico Sustainable Investments and Stanwell Corporation are delighted to announce the kickoff of the Wambo Wind Farm project stage 1 in Queensland’s Western Downs. The 252MW wind farm will involve 42 Vestas V162-6.0MW turbines and is estimated to achieve completion in 2025. Both Cubico and Stanwell, which is owned by the Queensland Government, will possess joint ownership of the plant during construction and the 30-year operational phase.David Smith, Cubico’s Country Head for Australia, commented on this milestone development: “We’re overjoyed to have reached yet another crucial step as part of our long-term strategy for renewable energy generation expansion in Australia. This includes collaborations with likeminded partners like Stanwell who share our same values toward decarbonisation. We’re also thankful for Powerlink’s supportive role in connecting the wind farm to a reliable grid.The construction of Wambo is projected to create 200 jobs during its initial phases and lead to 22 permanent slots once it has come into service. Toowoomba Surat Basin Enterprise (TSBE) will work alongside Cubico to select local businesses for participation in the project’s operations and provide area residents with upskilling opportunities within its supply chain. As such, TSBE will hold a public forum where community members can meet representatives from its appointed Engineering, Procurement and Construction provider – Vestas – and acquire further information regarding construction details at Jandowae later this month. Additional updates from Cubico concerning Wambo Stage 1 will be released to nearby residents early March 2021.
