Pacific Hydro scales back Kyneton wind
Renewable energy developer Pacific Hydro Ltd has announced a revised development application for the 100MW Keyneton wind farm project in South Australia’s Mount Lofty Ranges.
Pacific Hydro initially looked at the possibility of building 60 turbines on the development, reducing that number to 57 during consultations with the public last year. The company made a further reduction to the proposal in
December 2011, presenting a lay-out with 42 turbines.
South Australia’s Development Assessment Commission and the Commonwealth Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population & Communities will determine whether the application meets the requirements under the Environment Protection & Biodiversity Conservation Act.
Pacific Hydro also this week unveiled offshore plans to form a consortium with the world’s second largest mining company, Brazil’s Vale in a joint venture to power cleaner mining in Brazil.
Under the agreement, Pacific Hydro and Vale will each have 50% ownership of the two wind farm projects which will operate in Brazil’s northeast.
The Brazilian wind farm projects are expected to be completed by late 2014.
Pacific Hydro is also expected to launch its retail operations in Australia later this year, providing clean energy to large and medium organisations.
