Boulder Creek Wind Farm Project Update
Assessment process underway
Epuron is preparing to lodge a development application with the Queensland Government for the proposed Boulder Creek Wind Farm.
The onsite technical studies prescribed by the State Assessment and Referral Agency (SARA) are nearing completion and Epuron has established Cultural Heritage Management Agreements (CHMA) for the site with the Gaangalu Nation People and the Darumbal People.
The Federal Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment (DAWE) has also provided guidance for environmental assessment requirements under the Commonwealth Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act).
The initial proposed layout involves 61 turbines with a potential generating capacity of 360 megawatts (MW).
