Boulder Creek Wind Farm Update - November 2021
Project granted planning consent
The Queensland Government has granted planning consent for the Boulder Creek Wind Farm in central Queensland following Epuron’s lodgment of its development application and Environmental Impact Statement for the project in July 2021.
The consent is for installation of up to 60 wind turbines and associated infrastructure on a site approximately 5 km west of Mount Morgan and 40 km south-west of Rockhampton.
Boulder Creek Wind Farm is set to be the first large scale wind farm development in the Rockhampton region and will be a great opportunity for the area to benefit from Australia’s clean energy transition. The 18-24 month construction period is estimated to commence towards the end of 2022 and create up to 350 jobs.
Epuron is also finalising documentation for the proposal’s assessment and approval under the Commonwealth Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act). Once this has been accepted by the Australian Department of Agriculture, Water and Environment it will be placed on public exhibition.
