Project Central Wind
|Project Central Wind|
|Nameplate capacity||130 MW|
Project Central Wind is a proposed wind farm located on the Hihitahi Plateau between Waiouru and Taihape, New Zealand. Meridian Energy is developing the wind farm, which is planned to comprise 52 turbines and produce up to 130 MW.
Meridian Energy applied for resource consents in 2008. The consent hearing was held in December and Horizons Regional Council granted the resource consents in February 2009. The decision was appealed to the Environment Court in September 2009 and in January 2010 the court ruled the wind farm project could proceed. The approved consent conditions limit the number of turbines to 52 and maximum blade height to 135 m.
