Moorabool wind farm construction officially underway
By Lynton Balia on 04 September 2018
Construction on the $370 million Moorabool Wind Farm located approximately 4 kilometres south of Ballan in Victoria is set to begin.
Stage 1 of the project is comprised of the 150MW northern section of the Moorabool Wind Farm – also called as Moorabool North – while the entire wind farm will have a total capacity of 321MW. In addition, the preliminary works on the first stage of the project commenced this year.
Expected to generate enough renewable energy to power an average 200,000 Victorian homes annually, Moorabool North will include up to 50 wind turbines while the entire Moorabool Wind Farm will have about 107 turbines in total.
The project is expected to be operational by late 2019.
