Flyers Creek Wind Farm
The proposed Flyers Creek wind farm is located approximately 20 km southwest of Orange (Blayney Shire) in NSW and has an expected capacity of approximately 110-145 MW comprising up to 38 wind turbines, a substation, access tracks and an electrical collection system.
Project Approval for the Flyers Creek wind farm was granted by the NSW Government Planning Assessment Commission in March 2014.
The Environmental Assessment (EA), and Infigen’s Response to Submissions received to the EA, can be viewed at NSW Department of Planning and Environment website. The Flyers Creek Planning Report can also be viewed at this weblink.
Planning Modification 4 was lodged with the NSW Department of Planning and Environment in August 2018 to:
- Increase the wind turbine envelope so as to accommodate the newer, more efficient turbine models now available; and
- Include a 132kV transmission line and switching station so as to enable the Project to connect to the electrical grid.
The planning modification was approved by the Independent Planning Commission in August 2019. The application and associated documentation can be viewed here*.
