local case study

Australia

Ferguson

The wind farm has an output of 10.8 MW and is connected to the existing 22 kV electricity network in the Southwest of Victoria via two separate connection points (Ferguson North 3.6 MW and Ferguson South 7.2 MW). The three Vestas V136 4.0 MW turbines have 132m hub height (tip height 200m) and will produce the equivalent energy usage of around 7,500 households.

The planning application was lodged in October 2016 and following the assessment by the Department of Environment, Land Water and Planning, the Minister issued the Planning Permit in April 2017.  An amendment to the Permit to capture the procured turbine was approved in early 2019.
