Project Summary

The proposal is for a wind energy facility which will consist of the following components:

  • Up to 51 wind turbines (each up to 180m in height), with associated hardstanding areas and access roads
  • The turbines will be rated at approximately 3.6MW each, bringing the total installed wind capacity up to around 185MW
  • Operations and maintenance building with associated car parking
  • An electrical substation
  • Overhead and underground electrical cable reticulation
  • Meteorological masts for measuring wind speed and other climatic conditions
  • Temporary construction facilities including a construction compound, borrow pit and concrete batching plant facilities
  • Containerised battery energy storage

The design will be shaped by a number of detailed technical, engineering and environmental studies and assessments which include:

  • Ecology - Flora and Fauna
  • Landscape and Visual
  • Noise
  • Cultural Heritage
  • Bushfire Risk
  • Shadow Flicker and Blade Glint
  • Electromagnetic Interference Studies including TV & radio reception
  • Aviation
  • Access & Transport
  • Geology and Hydrology
  • Socio Economic

RES values community engagement and it is integral to this project. We have consulted with the local community and a wide number of stakeholders to provide input into the final design. Consultations activites include:

  • Community Information Days (held in October 2016 and April 2017)
  • Project Displays
  • Newsletters
  • One on One meetings with adjoining residents
  • Community Liaison Meeting (following planning approval)

RES supports the local community wherever possible. The consultants engaged on this project are almost all based in South Australia and all have extensive experience in renewable energy development.

We have consulted with a wide range of relevant Local Government, State and Federal Authorities, as well as local businesses, community groups and other interested parties.
