The Te Rere Hau wind farm located 11km outside of Palmerston North, Manwatū, generating enough electricity to power approximately 18,000 Kiwi homes annually.
The project was broken down into stages, with the first stage consisting of the establishment of 5 turbines in 2006.
In 2010, an additional 56 turbines were consented to be established by the local city council, increasing the total number of wind turbines to 61.
An extension area was developed on the East side of the site, after research proved to indicate that the wind farms energy yield would increase from 122GW hours per year to 153GW hours per year. Due to this, 32 turbines were developed in this extension.
Currently, 97 turbines are operating onsite. We are proud to have been able to be involved in this local Manawatū project and enjoyed the challenge.
