Twin Creek Wind Farm

A new wind farm project in Australia


The Project received Development Plan Consent in 2019 after RES completed a suite of environmental studies to establish the project viability and submitted a full planning application for the wind farm to the State Commission Assessment Panel.   

Since the original consent was granted, there has been substantial evolution in wind turbine technology. To take advantage of this, RES has optimised the project. The optimised project is expected to involve the construction and operation of up to 42 wind turbine generators (blade tip height up to 220 m) with a name plate capacity of up to 7.2MW and a total installed generation capacity of up to 270MW.

RES is continuing development of the Twin Creek Wind Farm given the social and economic benefits it is expected to provide at state, regional and local levels.

RES re-submitted the planning application for the optimised project in late 2023 and is now finalising the application.  It is expected that a planning determination will be made in mid 2024. 

It is envisaged that construction will begin in mid 2026, pending planning and grid connection approvals.
