The proposed Liverpool Range Wind Farm is a 1,320 megawatt wind farm project located between the townships of Coolah and Cassilis in the NSW Central-West Orana Renewable Energy Zone (REZ).
The project received planning approval in 2018, but in March 2019 was acquired by Tilt Renewables and in September 2022, Tilt Renewables, as the project's proponent, lodged a modification application to change the scope of the project.
The scope of the currently approved project is a 1,000 megawatt wind farm, and includes:
- 267 wind turbines with a maximum blade tip height of 165 metres above ground level, and
- 82 kilometres of 330kV transmission lines connecting into the Wellington-Wollar 330kV transmission line.
The proposed modification to the approved project, still subject to approval, includes:
- an increase to 1,320 MW capacity
- 220 turbines instead of 267, but with an increased maximum blade tip height to 250 metres above ground level, and
- amend the ancillary infrastructure and transport route, and
- increase the native vegetation clearing limits.
