Located approximately 50 km South-West of Warwick and approximately 10 kms south of Karara, 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.

Tip Height: up to 285 metres
Project Value: $1.96 billion AUD
Project Location: Approximately 50 km South-West of Warwick and approximately 10 kms south of Karara
ACCIONA has reached an agreement with CleanCo, the Queensland Government’s newest renewable energy generator, for it to become the independent owner and operator of a 100MW wind farm within the MacIntyre complex. In addition, CleanCo will acquire the annual production of 400MW from ACCIONA's facilities for ten years through a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA).
