Project scope

The project, to be located about 150 kilometres north-west of Rockhampton near Malborough in central Queensland, is being developed by Lacour Energy and Goldwind Australia.

The first stage of the project consists of a 101-turbine wind farm with an estimated total capacity of 450 megawatts.

The project proponents are planning a second stage of the project, which would increase the capacity of the wind farm to around 800 megawatts. Future works may also include the addition of a 200 to 400 megawatt solar farm and battery energy storage on-site.
