Tilt Renewables December 2017 quarter production results

17 Jan 2018

Tilt Renewables Limited (“Tilt Renewables”) advises that group production for the three months to 31 December 2017 was 10% below the prior year result. 

Wind conditions across the portfolio were lower on average compared to long-term expectation for the majority of assets over the quarter, despite asset performance being strong and averaging 97% availability across Tilt Renewables’ fleet of 307 wind turbines in the December 2017 quarter.
Production from the Australian portfolio in the December 2017 quarter was 7% down on the prior year, predominantly due to lower wind conditions in South Australia.
New Zealand wind speeds continued to be below long-term expectation with production on a Year To Date (9 months to 31 December 2017) basis continuing to track at P90 confidence levels (i.e. 90% probability that generation will be above this level which can be thought of as a 1 in 10 year downside event). The poor year-on-year comparison reflects this underperformance plus the non-repeat of strong wind conditions in New Zealand in 2016.
