Infigen lodges $200 million NSW wind farm
Infigen Energy has lodged a development proposal to build about 40 turbines at Mount Bodangora near Wellington, south of Dubbo in New South Wales.
The $200 million wind farm is the first proposal to meet the state’s requirements for wind farm guidelines and meet the Director General’s requirements.Development Manager for Infigen, Frank Boland, said “We lodged it on the basis of the previous DGR’s but during that process the draft guidelines were released and the director general requested that we have regard for them and fortunately we’d done a pretty good environmental assessment before that, so it made it quite easy to meet some of those new guidelines.””The environmental assessments included a thorough noise study, we’ve also done flora and fauna, telecommunication’s been a very large one out there with Mount Bodangora being a central point and we’ve also done Aboriginal Cultural Heritage,” Mr Boland added. Up to 100 megawatts of power will be produced by the wind farm.
