Located approximately 30km north of Jamestown and 200km north from Adelaide, South Australia - the Hornsdale Wind Farm comprises 32 SIEMENS wind turbines GENERATOR, each with the ability to generate 3.2 megawatts of power - that’s a cumulative total of 102.4 megawatts!

The electricity generated from each wind turbine will be transmitted via underground cable or overhead transmission line to a central cable marshalling point at the onsite substation, which will be located next to the 275kV power line that runs through the site area. The substation will then connect directly into the National Electricity Transmission Grid. The connecting 275kV lines are owned and operated by ElectraNet and are used to provide a secure transmission link between Port Augusta and the Adelaide Metropolitan Area. The power generated from the Hornsdale Wind Farm will flow into the national interconnected network.
The new power line was constructed on concrete poles – and between February and May 2016, Marais Laying Technologies - along with our 1 SMC200R Marais trencher - worked alongside Consolidated Power Projects to complete this $3.16 million dollar project.
