Musselroe Wind Farm is a wind farm at Cape Portland, Tasmania, Australia.[1] It is third wind farm in the state, being owned and operated by Hydro Tasmania. It consists of 56 Vestas V90-3MW wind turbines, with a generating capacity of 168 MW. The energy output from the Musselroe Wind Farm will be sufficient to supply electricity to around 50,000 households and abate 450,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions annually.[2]

The first 37 turbines have been connected to the grid in 2013,[3] and the full farm was completed in January 2014.[4]
