Acculec joins the renewable sector winning the supply of products for the Moorabool Wind Farm construction project.
The Moorabool Wind Farm project is located approximately 4km south of Ballan, approximately 67km from Melbourne, 27km from Ballarat and 47km from Geelong. It will extend 14km north to south between Ballan and Mount Wallace to the west of the C141 (Geelong-Ballan Road).
The Minister for Planning has approved construction and operation of up to 107 wind turbines. If 3.4 MW turbines are used at all 107 locations, that is a total of 363.8 MW of renewable electricity being generated.
The Project would result in up to 1,100,000 MWh of renewable electricity being generated. This is enough renewable energy to power the equivalent of 223,000 average Victorian homes annually, approximately 11% of Victorian households.*
The project is divided into two sections, the Bungeeltap Section to the north of the project site and the Ballark Section to the south. All turbines proposed are 171m to the tip of the blade.
Construction is expected to commence early 2018 and the wind farm is expected to commence operation early 2019.
The project will have significant local benefits during construction, with investment in the local economy. Moorabool Wind Farm is committed to maximising opportunities for local suppliers where possible and delivering benefits for the local economy.
