The Moonies Hill Energy Pty Ltd (MHE) is planning to construct the Flat Rocks Wind Farm project in Western Australia, Australia.
The project involves the construction of a 150MW wind farm and is planned to be implemented in two stages.
The first stage includes the installation of 14 wind turbines, the second stage includes the installation of 59 wind turbines and construction of a solar farm with 10MW.
The project will include the construction of a substation, tower foundation and access roads, the installation of towers, generators and transformers, and the laying of transmission lines.
GL Garrad Hassan and Mattiske Consulting PTY Ltd have been appointed as environmental consultants, William James Landscape Architect as landscape architect, Herring Storer Acoustics as acoustics consultant, John Cecchi Heritage Management Consultancy as archeological surveyor, and R & E O'connor Pty Ltd as ethnographic surveyor for the project.
In November 2010, MHE submitted planning application and secured approval for first stage in November 2011.
The project received US$100 million grant from the government through Regional Grants Scheme.
In March 2013, Great Southern development assessment panel rejected planning application due to the opposition from local residents. Later, in July 2013 conditional planning approval was granted by the panel.
The first stage of the project received all environmental and developmental approvals and land access arrangements are in place with significant progress on network access. The second stage has land access arrangements and developmental approvals attained, network access studies not commenced.
On December 2016, Moonies Hill Energy had asked the Kojonup council to include a new wind turbine model i.e. Vestas V126 3.45MW, because of which the total number of turbines required for the project will come down to 41 from 74.
The council has approved the plans for the first stage of the project with scheduled commencing in 2018.
The project involves the construction of a 150MW wind farm 25km south east of Kojonup in Western Australia, Australia.
The US$400 million project includes the following:
1. Construction of a 40MW wind farm in first stage
2. Construction of a 90MW wind farm in second stage
3. Construction of a 10MW wind farm in third stage
4. Construction of access roads
5. Construction of substations
6. Installation of 14 wind turbines in first stage
7. Installation of 59 wind turbines in second stage
