The Chalumbin Wind Farm site is located in northern Queensland, approximately 10km south of Ravenshoe, 65 km south-west of Innisfail and west of Tully Falls National Park.
The site was selected because of its excellent wind resource, proximity to high voltage transmission lines and low population density.
Wind measurements show particularly high night-time wind speeds which would complement Queensland's overall energy mix.
It is anticipated that the project will involve up to 95 wind turbines and have a potential generating capacity of approximately 600 megawatts (MW).
Wind farms generate significant economic benefits for local and regional communities and around half of the capital cost is expected to be spent within Queensland.
Epuron is working with stakeholders and various studies and on-site surveys are underway in preparation for a development application.
Epuron welcomes questions and input from members of the community and other interested parties. This helps us to understand views on benefits and impacts, and where possible shape the project to provide the greatest benefit.
