Squadron Energy (formerly CWP Renewables) have proposed the construction of a wind farm with a total output capacity of 414 megawatts (MW).

The wind farm would be located approximately 14 kilometres east of Wellington, New South Wales, within the Central-West Orana Renewable Energy Zone.

The project consists of:

  • 69 six GW wind turbines genorators (WTGs),
  • a 150 MW / 150 MWh battery energy storage facility, and 
  • associated infrastructure and temporary facilities.

Key Dates

Jan 2024 Construction Commencement


The project is being developed and financed by Squadron Energy.


Procuring Agency: Squadron Energy
Successful Tenderer: EPC contract: consortium of GE Verona, NACAP and CCP WTG supply contract: GE Verona
Procurement note:

The supply of the 69 wind turbines, valued at $1 billion, is being undertaken via a $2.75 billion ‘Green Strategic Alliance’ with a consortium comprising GE Verona, NACAP and CCP. The Alliance also includes the supply of wind turbines for two additional Squadron Energy projects: Spicers Creek Wind Farm (117 wind turbine units) and Jeremiah Wind Farm (65 wind turbine units).


Jul 2011 The wind farm was first publicly announced.
Jul 2013 Environmental Assessment prepared for a site consisting of 249 turbines.
Jul 2018 Following review and feedback, the scope was revised to focus on the western region and remove 122 turbines from the proposal.
Jun 2019 A further eight wind turbines were removed from the design after stakeholder consultation.
Jan 2020 A further 12 turbines were removed from the scope, reducing the proposal to 'up to' 97 turbines.
May 2020 The State Significant Development (SSD) and Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) were put on public exhibition by the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE), closing July 2020.
Jul 2020 The NSW DPIE requested the proponent respond to the submissions from exhibition.
May 2021 The project received planning approval from the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment and was declared a State Significant Development. The capital cost of the project was estimated to be $820 million.
Jan 2024 Squadron Energy announced a $2.75 billion ‘Green Strategic Alliance’ with a consortium comprising GE Verona, NACAP and CCP. Under the Alliance, GE Verona will supply 69 turbines with a capacity of six megawatts (MW) each for the 414 MW Uungula Wind Farm, to the value of $1 billion. NACAP and CCP will provide engineering, procurement and construction services for the project. Construction also commenced on the project.
