Trustpower Australia Holdings Pty Ltd (Trustpower), a subsidiary of Trustpower Ltd, plans to develop a wind farm in New South Wales, Australia.
The project involves the construction of a 378MW wind farm. It includes the construction of substations, access roads, turbine foundations, operations and maintenance facilities, the installation of generators, transformers, and 92 wind turbines, and the laying of 35km 330kV overhead transmission line.
