Proposals set out for $300m wind farm

As the gigantic wind-turbine components are rumbling across the Tablelands to Mount Emerald, another wind farm is moving into its community engagement phase.

The proposed $300-million Kaban Green Power Hub is a hot topic in the Ravenshoe area with the developer, Neoen, meeting property owners in the area.

The company held an open day at Ravenshoe’s QCWA hall last week.
Neoen Australia’s head of wind development Garth Heron said the project site about 6km northeast of Ravenshoe covered an area of about 546ha between Ravenshoe and Kaban.

He said the design for the Kaban Green Power Hub provided for up to 29 wind turbines with a tip height of up to 240m. Each turbine will produce 4.2MW at full output. The hub will have battery storage of 70-100MW.

“The project has one of the lowest visual impacts in Neoen’s portfolio as it is gently sloping and is surrounded by large tracks of vacant government land on three sides,” Mr Heron said. “An existing transmission line already runs across the site eliminating the need to build new transmission infrastructure.”

“The Kaban Green Power Hub project will be able to produce about 376,680MW hours of clean energy per year, enough to power around 57,000 average homes a year.”
