The Berrimal Wind Farm is proposed for a site 19km west of Wedderburn in the Buloke Shire of north western Victoria.
The wind farm will be constructed along an elevated ridge exposed to consistent winds across the open Mallee Plains to the north and west.
A planning application is currently under review by the Buloke Shire, updating a previous consent issued in 2007. If approved, the A$150m project will generate significant economic activity in the Buloke Shire and surrounds - including over 80 construction jobs and 5 full time operations positions.
ACCIONA Energy was granted a planning permit for the installation of 16 turbines by Buloke Shire Council in 2007. With substantial improvements in wind turbine efficiency since 2007, ACCIONA Energy has prepared and submitted a revised planning application to allow for these more efficient turbines to be used at the Berrimal site. This application is currently under review at Council.
