Pacific Hydro cuts turbines at SA farm
Pacific Hydro’s Keyneton wind farm in South Australia will now have 15 fewer turbines after a round of community consultation and environmental assessment.
The wind farm, west of Sedan in the Barossa Valley, was planned with 57 turbines but the number has been cut to 42.
Pacific Hydro says it is removing planned turbines from the middle section of the development. The company also says large vehicles will be banned from using certain roads in the vicinity of the site during the construction phase.
“Certainly some people will have less turbines on their property now than they first envisaged, but we’ve obviously talked to them about that and it’s all about the design process and doing something that is acceptable to a majority of people, which I think we have,” Andrew Richards, from Pacific Hydro, told local media.
