Banana Range Wind Farm - 180MW
The Banana Range Wind Farm project is planned to be located approximately 20 km west of the town of Biloela in Central Queensland.
The project will consist of up to 50 wind turbines with a power output of approximately 180MW and may include large-scale battery storage.
Lacour Energy selected this project site based on wind modelling of the region showing high wind speeds combined with the presence of a high voltage powerline going through the site. Lacour initiated the development and have undertaken feasibility studies including: wind resource assessments, environmental assessments, landowner agreements, network connection, layout design, development approval preparation, regulator consultation and community consultation.
The Wind Farm is currently in the feasibility phase with work being undertaken on the technical, environmental, social and economic aspects of the project. If the feasibility study demonstrates a viable project, then it is intended that construction would commence in late 2020.
