About the Wind Farm
Cattle Hill Wind Farm is located on the eastern shore of Lake Echo in the southern side of the Central Plateau of Tasmania and connects into TasNetwork’s transmission network at the adjacent Waddamana Substation.
Construction was completed in 2020 with installation of 48 Goldwind GW140 3MW turbines, each standing at 170 metres in height.
The site is fully operating with a local team of 9 undertaking site management, operation and maintenance work.
The project output of 144MW is equivalent to the consumption of approximately 63,500 Tasmanian homes, increasing the State’s renewable energy generation by approximately 5%, providing a significant contribution to the recent achievement of Tasmania’s target of becoming fully self-sufficient with renewable energy by 2022.
The Cattle Hill Wind Farm team aims to keep the local community informed of the project status and timing, any significant activities or events, and community initiatives - see most recent media releases here.
If you have any enquiries about the project please contact us and one of the project team members will get back to you shortly.
