Epuron is investigating the elevated plateau to the south of Burnie in the Surrey Hills Estate area, to the east of Waratah. These ridges have strong wind speeds and are currently used for forestry plantation operations. There are few residences in the area which means the potential for noise and other impacts to residences are minimised.
The Hellyer Wind Farm is located to the north of the site.
The map below shows the wind prospecting area as well as the location of existing 110,000 volt (pink) and 220,000 volt (purple) transmission lines which cross the area. Nearby substations are also shown.
