AGL Energy has approvals in place to develop the Silverton Wind Farm Project as part of AGL's commitment to build a sustainable energy future for all Australians.
Extension Application to the original Development Approval.
Silverton Wind Farm applied for an extension to the original Development Approval and this was granted on 11th April 2014. The Development Approval is now valid until 24th May 2016.
AGL Energy Limited (AGL) has reaffirmed its commitment to continuing development activities for the Silverton Wind Farm during a local Community Consultative Committee meeting on Thursday, 25 February.
AGL has reissued the construction tender for the development of the Silverton Wind Farm project in western New South Wales. While there is still a long way to go before a final decision can be made about the project being constructed, the tender is another step forward in the project’s development process.
Tender submissions are due in June 2016 and those interested have been asked to tender on a wind farm initially proposed to have a capacity of up to 200 MW. AGL’s decision on whether the project proceeds to construction will depend on several factors including the results of the tender, other development activities and final financing arrangements.
Silverton Wind Farm is located in the Barrier Ranges of NSW, with its south-western boundary approximately five kilometres north of Silverton and approximately 25 kilometres north-west of Broken Hill. The placement of turbines would be located over the Mundi Mundi Range in the southern portion of the site and Mount Robe Range in the northern portion of the site.
