Willatook WIND FARM


Key milestones to date include:

First wind monitoring mast installation : 4th Jun 2009

An 80 metre wind monitoring mast has been installed on the proposed Willatook Wind Farm site. Data collected indicates the presence of a viable wind resource in the area.

Wind farm proposal announced : 13th Sep 2010

The announcement of the proposed Willatook Wind Farm was made by Wind Prospect.

Sodar wind monitoring installation : 27th Jul 2011

A new Sodar wind monitoring device was deployed to capture wind measurements across the site. Sodar technology sends sound pulses into the air then listens for the return echo to measure the wind speed.  Deployment of this technologylimits the number of fixed wind monitoring masts. The sodar device will continue to be moved around the site.

Second ​wind monitoring mast installation : October 2017

A 120 metre additional wind monitoring mast has been installed on the proposed Willatook Wind Farm site. Data collected will assist in determination of the best possible location for each turbine.
