The Australian arm of Thailand’s Ratch Group has agreed to supply Australian utility with Zen Energy with 200GWh of electricity a year from two wind farms totalling 259.8MW.

The companies have signed a 10-year PPA that includes 20.6% of the electricity and large-scale generation contracts from the 226.8MW Collector wind farm in New South Wales, Australia; and 100% of the electricity and LGCs from the 33MW Starfish Hill wind farm in Cape Jervis, South Australia.

Anthony Garnaut, chief executive of Zen Energy, said: “Bilateral power off-take agreements between retailers such as Zen and renewable project owners like Ratch Australia are creating significant and growing demand for utility-scale wind, as well as solar, energy in Australia.”

Sahachthorn Putthong, chief executive of Ratch Australia, said: “There is a strong synergy between Ratch Australia and Zen and we look forward to working together in the long term. We have shared aims to continue to grow as leading value-orientated energy companies in Australia, similar cultures of caring for the communities in which we operate and commitment to driving emissions reduction.”
