Go-ahead for 70 MW Eyre Peninsula plant

Tarong Energy -- a generating company owned by the Queensland state government -- has announced the formal go-ahead for the 70 MW Mount Millar wind farm (previously known as Yabmana) on the Eyre Peninsula in South Australia. Work on the A$130 million project, comprising 35, 2 MW turbines supplied by Germany's Enercon, is to start soon. The wind farm will be connected to the state power grid via a new 132 kV overhead transmission line between ElectraNET's Yadnarie substation and the on-site substation. It is expected to become fully operational by 2006. "Having built South Australia's first wind farm at Starfish Hill, near Cape Jervis, Tarong Energy is more than keen to consolidate its wind farm portfolio by developing this larger project on the Eyre Peninsula," says the company's Ken Dredge.
