Lying south of the 40th parallel in the path of prevailing westerly winds, Tasmania has excellent resources for the generation of wind power.

The Musselroe Wind Farm site is 100 kilometres north-east of Launceston and 20 kilometres north of Gladstone. It is an agricultural property owned by Hydro Tasmania.

The Musselroe Wind Farm will have 56 wind turbines, with a generating capacity of 168 MW.

The project includes the construction of a transmission line to connect the wind farm to the electricity grid at Derby.

Wind has been monitored at the Musselroe site since the early 1980s. Data gathered suggests that the area’s wind resource is world class.
