Located 40km from Inverloch, Victoria - the Bald Hills Wind Farm is home to an impressive 52 SENVION wind turbines, each with the ability to generate 2.05 megawatts of power - that’s a cumulative total of 106.6 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.
