Resource consent applications for Kaimai wind turbine project
Resource consent applications have been lodged for a $180 million wind farm to be located at the northern end of the Kaimai Ranges.
Ventus Energy is proposing to install up to 24 wind turbines on privately owned farmland at Tirohia.
The original proposal sought to install up to 26 wind turbines; however, after consultation with affected parties, this has now been reduced to 24.
Nominally, the turbines will have a hub height up to 132m with a rotor diameter of between 136 and 150m. The final number of turbines, exact location and size will be determined following further investigation and consultation.
