local case study

Australia

Yawong

The Yawong Wind Farm obtained it’s Planning Permit in March 2018 before being constructed in 2018 and commenced operations at the end of that year. Located approximately 17km northeast of St. Arnaud in Victoria, the site was chosen for its elevated position relative to the flat surrounding terrain which accentuates the strong, consistent wind speeds, its close proximity to the electrical grid, and large setbacks to nearby dwellings.

The wind farm has a capacity of 7.2 MW comprising two Vestas V126 3.6 MW turbines each with a hub height of 87m. The wind turbines can provide the equivalent energy usage of around 6,200 households, and connect to the existing 22 kV power line that runs adjacent to the site.
