Project Details

Location: Tarwin Lower, VIC 3956

The Bald Hills Wind Farm is located approximately 10km south east of Tarwin Lower in South Gippsland, Victoria on a site of approximately 1750ha of largely cleared cattle and sheep grazing farm land.

The project comprised the design, supply and installation of the substation and 33kV reticulation for 52 SENVION MM92 wind turbines.

​The Bald Hills Wind Farm construction included the procurement and installation of:

  • 2 x 70MVA 66/33kV power transformers
  • 66kV Switchgear
  • 52 x SUT Kiosks
  • MV & LV cables
  • transportable control/switch room
  • 33kV indoor switchboard
  • protection and control equipment
  • operations and maintenance buildings

Wind Farm Reticulation

The wind farm electrical reticulation network consists of approximately 46,000 metres of direct buried 3 core aluminium XLPE cable connecting the wind turbines to the wind farm substation.

Wind Farm Substation

The wind farm substation comprises two (2) 70MVA, 66/33kV transformer bays and associated 66kV switchgear, two (2) indoor 33kV switchboards housed in a transportable building which also includes a SCADA room and AC/DC room and two (2) 33kV reactive plant bays and associated 33kV switchgear.

The electricity generated by the wind farm is transmitted via a double circuit 66kV sub transmission line from the wind farm substation at the northern end of the site to AusNet’s Leongatha South switchyard.
