Meridian Energy gets green light for 70 MW South Island project

After a three day hearing, resource consent has been granted to New Zealand's state owned electricity generator Meridian Energy for its NZ$100 million wind farm proposed for White Hill in the lower South Island. Around 90% of the submissions made at the hearing were in favour of the 70 MW development. The turbine supplier for the project is yet to be confirmed, but Meridian is said to be considering using machines from Vestas, with which it has a long term working relationship. Options being considered include using 35 of the Danish company's 2 MW V80 machines or 42 of its 1.65 MW NM72 machines, which are the same as those installed at Meridian's Te Apiti wind farm last year (Windpower Monthly, November 2004).
