Cattle Hill Wind Farm Overview
Cattle Hill Wind Farm is located on the eastern shore of Lake Echo in the southern side of the Central Plateau of Tasmania. See here for a map of the project layout.
The project will consist of 48 turbines totaling 148.5 MW. It will involve the construction and operation of wind turbines, together with the control and maintenance buildings, associated civil works and electrical infrastructure required to connect into the existing transmission network.
The project area involves two landholdings that are used for grazing, small forestry operations and hunting purposes. This existing use will continue with minimal interruption from the project’s construction and operation.
The wind turbines will be a combination of Goldwind advanced turbine technology, with a maximum height of 170 metres above ground level. The wind turbines will be connected by a series of underground and overhead power lines, joining each wind turbine to the on-site substation.
Additional permanent structures such as an operations and maintenance facility and the Identiflight system will be required as well as temporary construction facilities during the construction period.
Construction of the project is underway and the wind farm is aimed to become fully operational in late 2019.
Cattle Hill Wind Farm is owned by Power China Group and Goldwind Capital Australia Pty Ltd.
Initial development of the project, including detailed site analysis, concept design, onsite wind monitoring, and submission of the Development Application and related Environmental Management Plan was undertaken by NP Power Pty Ltd.
