26/04/2015 Milestone The wind farm reaches 100,000 operational turbine hours in the morning of the 26th of April. Overall availability to date is 99.48%.
Three wind turbines are spinning on a hill on a private sheep farm 4 km north of Mt Barker on the western side of Albany Highway. The windfarm consists of three 800kW E53 Enercon wind turbines, bigger than those in Esperance but smaller than those in Albany. As Mt Barker is inland, they are on 73m high towers. The project cost was about $8.5 million in total.
