Chalumbin

The site proposed for the project is approximately 15 km south of Ravenshoe, within two cattle grazing properties Wooroora and Glen Gordon Stations. Wind measurements show particularly high night-time wind speeds which would complement Queensland's overall energy mix. In addition to an excellent wind resource, the site is close to road transport and the transmission network, and includes existing disturbed areas and Powerlink access tracks that the project can utilise.

The current proposed design involves 94 wind turbines and associated infrastructure, connected to the existing 275 kV powerlines.
