MacIntyre Wind Farm

Located approximately 50 km South-West of Warwick and 60 km South-South-East of Millmerran, the proposed MacIntyre Wind Farm is expected to have an export capacity of approximately 1,026 MW and up to 180 turbines.

The MacIntyre Wind Farm will be located within 36,000 hectares of leased land approximately 200 kms south-west of Brisbane and approximately 50 kms south-west of Warwick in Queensland.

The MacIntyre Wind Farm will be constructed on land predominately used for sheep farming.  Current farming practices will continue during the construction and operations phases of the wind farm.

The site has been selected due to its exposure to consistent winds across this part of the country and provides a suitable resource for the development of a wind farm.

Expected capacity: 1,026 MW

Number of Turbines: Up to 180

Maximum Tip Height: 285 metres

Anticipated construction commencement: Mid 2021

Anticipated construction duration: 18 – 24 months
