Third stage of Portland wind farm gets nod  

The Victorian Government has given Pacific Hydro permission to start the third stage of its wind farm project at Portland in the south-west.

Twenty-two turbines can now be built at Cape Nelson.

Stage one of the project at Yambuk is finished and the construction of the second stage at Cape Bridgewater has started.

A fourth stage will ensure the Pacific Hydro project is the largest wind farm development in Australia.

The executive manager of government and corporate affairs, Andrew Richards, says construction at Cape Nelson will start in the next couple of months.

“The first stage of these sorts of things is you start building the roads and the site huts and those sorts of things, then you get into the foundations of the wind turbines themselves, all the electrical work, and then progressively we bring the towers in, then the cells and the blades, so over a period of 12 to 15 months we’ll be able to have this part of the project up and running,” he said.
