Wind Prospect has been granted provision planning approval to develop a 25 MW wind farm at Troubridge Point, ten kilometres south west of Edithburgh on South Australia's Yorke Peninsula. Expected to generate enough energy to supply over 12,000 homes, the wind farm is the company's fourth to be approved for mainland Australia and will bring its generating capacity up to around 180 MW once all four projects are completed. "The Troubridge approval marks a further key step in our highly successful development program in South Australia," says the company's Michael Vawser. Wind Prospect is a consortium which includes wind project developer/operator enXco (now owned by SIIF Energie, the renewables division of French utility EDF), America's Zilkha Renewable Energy and the UK's Wind Prospect. Its three other projects planned for development in Australia are the 25 turbine 44 MW Green Point wind farm, the 35 turbine 60 MW Yabmana project and the 40-55 MW Lake Bonney Central wind farm which will have up to 30 turbines.
