The wind farm site is located approximately 12.5 km south of Simpson, Victoria. The wind farm site is bounded by Turong Road to the north, Princetown Road to the east and Boorook Road to the south.
The area where the wind turbines will be installed is shown in the map below and consists of privately owned land that is used primarily for milk production.
Site Location (click to view larger)
This site has been chosen because it receives undisturbed wind flow with strong, consistent wind speeds, is in close proximity to the electrical grid, and enjoys large setbacks to nearby dwellings.
The proposed wind turbines will have an overall height of up to 150m (to the tip of the blade). The turbines will be separated from each other by several hundred metres with access tracks between them leading to the site entrance on Princetown Road. All cables within the site will be laid underground. The wind farm will connect into the existing power line which runs across the site.
