AusNet Services has completed a new transmission line for the 54 MW Salt Creek Wind Farm project in western Victoria. The transmission line connects the wind farm to the Terang Terminal Station via 50.5km of 66kV powerline. The project was put into service on Monday, June 4th 2018.
The wind farm is expected to produce on average 172 GWh per annum, producing sufficient energy to power around 30,000 homes.
Construction began in September 2017 following an extensive period of collaborative planning and design between AusNet Services and Tilt Renewables, in conjunction with industry and state planning bodies.
Salt Creek Wind Farm is located around 250 kilometres west of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. The site is located on a Merino Stud Farm and offers excellent wind resource.
Tilt Renewables is a significant and established owner, operator and developer of wind farm assets, with an operating portfolio of 582 MW of assets located in high wind resource regions and 54 MW of wind currently under construction.
Tilt Renewables has a development pipeline of more than 2700 MW of wind and solar projects across Australia and NZ.
