Location

The wind farm is located on the high ground west of the township of Maroona, adjacent to Andrews Lane. The site envelope within which the two wind turbines are located is shown in the map below and consists largely of cleared farming land.

The site receives undisturbed wind flow with strong, consistent wind speeds, and enjoys large setbacks to nearby dwellings. The local electricity grid runs alongside the site, and there are no tourist attractions or major roads in the immediate area.

Wind Farm

The Vestas wind turbines have an overall height of 150m (to the tip of the blade). They are separated from each other by several hundred metres with access tracks between them leading to the site entrance on Andrews Lane. All cables within the site are laid underground.  The wind farm connects into the existing power line which runs across the site.
