Wind Prospect CWP is continuing to investigate upwards of 100 potential turbine locations for its Bango Wind Farm project, but the land area being assessed for the project has now been reduced from that which was designated in the initial environmental assessment for the project.
Changes to the proposed envelope of Bango have been made based on ongoing community consultation and feedback plus the results of early studies, Wind Prospect CWP said.
The project is set to be located near the towns of Boorowa and Rye Park in New South Wales.
The wind farm could consist of turbines with a rated capacity of between 1.5–4.5 MW each. The turbines would be three-bladed, multi-pitch, horizontal axis machines mounted on top of a steel tower with blade lengths ranging from 40 m to greater than 65 m and tower heights ranging from 70 m to over 120 m.
