AusNet Services has completed the construction of a new transmission connection for the 80 MW Crowlands Wind Farm project in the Pyrenees Shire Council in western Victoria, near Avoca. The Crowlands Wind Farm is owned by Pacific Hydro - a global renewable energy owner, operator and developer based in Melbourne.
The terminal station will connect the wind farm into AusNet Services Victorian transmission network. The wind farm itself will comprise 39 turbines with total capacity of 80 MW, and produce clean energy equivalent to the yearly needs of approximately 50,000 Victorian homes.
Construction began in February 2018 following an extensive period of collaborative planning and design between AusNet Services and Pacific Hydro, in conjunction with industry and state planning bodies.
Crowlands wind farm project is a renewable energy development located in Western Victoria’s Pyrenees Shire Council, 25km north-east of Ararat (205km west of Melbourne). It is owned by Pacific Hydro.
