The proposed Willatook Wind Farm and battery storage facility is located in the Moyne Shire in south-western Victoria, approximately 20kms north of Port Fairy and 30kms northwest of Warrnambool. The wind farm’s neighbouring townships are Orford, Hawkesdale and Koroit.
The south-west corner of Victoria is known for strong and reliable winds. This, combined with cleared land used predominantly for cattle and sheep farming with some dairy farming and cropping and the proximity to existing transmission infrastructure, makes Willatook well suited to a wind farm development.
The project will harness these strong winds to generate power for up to 260,000 households, saving approximately 1.3million tonnes of CO2 equivalent annually.
The wind farm will incorporate 59 wind turbines, an on-site battery storage facility and associated infrastructure including an on-site quarry, access tracks, underground cabling, overhead lines, a substation and transmission powerline within the site to connect with the existing Tarrone Terminal Station.
