First towers arrive at Musselroe Wind Farm
The first of nearly 170 tower components arrived at the Musselroe Wind Farm today, marking a major milestone in development of the project.
The $400 million Musselroe project will have 56 wind turbines, with a total generating capacity of 168 megawatts. Each turbine tower is fabricated in three parts, making a total of 168 sections to be transported, each of which is between 24-29 metres in length. The tower components range in weight from 28-76 tonnes.
Custom-built truck/trailer systems are being used to transport the tower components from Launceston-based Haywards Steel Fabrication and Construction to the wind farm site at Cape Portland in north-east Tasmania.
Transport of the components will occur at night to minimise any disruption to traffic, and will continue until December.
Erection of towers at the Musselroe Wind Farm will begin in November this year.
