Assessment studies underway

Studies prescribed in the Environment Protection Authority Tasmania’s Project Specific Guidelines for the project’s Environmental Impact Statement are underway.

As part of this work Epuron is involved in tracking a number of wedge-tailed eagles around the project area using GPS devices. Eagle utilisation across the site will be studied for up to two years and the second of eight seasons of studies has been completed.

The initial design involves 80 wind turbines with an estimated output capacity of up to 300 megawatts of clean energy. Findings from assessment studies will inform the final project design.

Questions and comments

Epuron values input from members of the local community and other interested parties to help shape the project and maximise benefits. Questions and comments are welcome at any time and can be sent to the project team via email or the online feedback form.
