Project proposal for 40 MW in south-west Victoria

Wind Farm Developments is the latest developer trying to push a project over the line in Victoria since the introduction of the Victorian Renewable Energy Target in July. It is finalising its planning application for the Woolsthorpe wind farm, an A$85 million, 40 MW development of 20 turbines in south-west Victoria. It hopes to secure planning consent by mid 2007 to enable construction by 2008. Wind Hydrogen Ltd, which recently signed an agreement with German company Pro Ventum to jointly develop the 232 MW Mount Gellibrand wind farm near Colac in Victoria, has negotiated the right to purchase Woolsthorpe from Wind Farm Developments.
