About This Project

The Proposal will involve the construction & operation of a large-scale wind farm. The Proposal includes: up to 488 wind turbines, each with three blades mounted on a tubular steel tower and a generator transformer inside or adjacent to each tower; electrical connections between wind turbines and the site substations using a combination of underground cable & overhead concrete, timber or steel pole power lines; site substations to convert from reticulation voltages (22 66kV) to medium voltages (66 220kV) for connection with the transmission switchyard; an onsite transmission switchyard that includes high voltage transformers & switchgear for connecting the output of the wind farm to offsite transmission lines; new 24 kilometre transmission line connecting the transmission switchyard with TransGrid s existing Broken Hill; substation (20 kilometres off site); new 305 kilometre transmission line connecting the transmission switchyard with SP-Ausnet s existing Red Cliffs substation in Victoria (301 kilometres off site); onsite control and maintenance buildings, including storage facilities for equipment, materials and spares and workers facilities building; internal access tracks, hardstand areas and other associated infrastructure required for the construction, installation and maintenance of the wind farm; & minor upgrades to site access via the Silverton Road, Eldee Station Road and Daydream Mine Road. Additional temporary construction infrastructure would be required during the construction and refurbishment or decommissioning phases.
