​​​The Proposal

Epuron Projects Pty Ltd proposes to construct a wind farm located at 2753 Ridgley Highway, Hampshire, approximately 26 km southwest of Burnie. The proposed windfarm will have a total generating capacity of 300 MW with up to 48 wind turbines. Infrastructure will include roads, construction hardstand and laydown areas, temporary concrete batching plants, temporary construction site office and amenities, and an operations site office and maintenance building. On-site quarries will also be considered if feasible.

​Two network transmission options are being considered. Development of an onsite connection switchyard, connecting to the existing 110 kV Hampshire-Waratah Tee line which crosses the project area, and a second option involving the construction of a new transmission line which would connect to the proposed 220 kV Hampshire Hills switchyard (TasNetworks), which is likely to be located just north of the site. ​
