As Vestas and Australian company Transfield begin construction at Stanwell Corporation's 22 MW Toora wind plant in Victoria's south east, Stanwell is preparing to seek approval for a second Victorian project, this time at Narranda, 20 kilometres from Warrnambool. Richard Mackie of Stanwell says the planning application for the 50 MW Narranda project is expected to be lodged within two months. Stanwell is also investigating one site north of Perth in Western Australia and another site in South Australia at Kongarong, 30 kilometres south of Mount Gambier. Although seeking new sites, Stanwell has announced that its Windy Hill phase 2 project in north Queensland is on hold for an indefinite period due to higher turbine prices and the poor performance of the Australian dollar.
