Wind farm set to be developed on Tasmanian cattle farm

Granville wind farm project awaits Senate vote http://www.perthnow.com.au/news/national/granville-wind-farm-project-awaits-senate-vote/story-fnjj6012-1227411859560, 23 June 15 HELEN KEMPTON Mercury THE 1900 cattle grazing on Tasmania’s most isolated farm will soon share the land with up to 33 wind turbines if Australia’s Renewable Energy Target is passed in the Senate tomorrow.

West Coast Wind plans to start construction of its wind farm on Royce Smith’s 1255ha beef property at Granville Harbour, outside Zeehan, at the end of the year. Already, a wind monitoring station is recording bankable energy data as investors in the $200 million project are secured. At 80m tall, the wind monitoring tower is as high as the turbines will be.
