The Landscape of Renewable Energy

Musselroe Wind Farm, a part of Tasmania’s forward-thinking approach to renewable energy, is situated in an area of cultural heritage and environmental significance. Its location offers a blend of natural beauty and technological advancement, evident at the Tebrakunna Visitor Centre, which provides insights into the wind farm and the region’s rich history.

Danterr’s Role in the Musselroe Wind Farm Project

Danterr’s involvement in the Musselroe Wind Farm project highlights their commitment to supporting sustainable energy initiatives. For the construction of the wind tower concrete bases, Danterr supplied essential products that were crucial for the project’s success. The concrete bar spacers imported from Germany offered high compressive strength and time-saving benefits on-site. Additionally, Danterr, being the exclusive Australian distributor for Pagel, provided the Pagel V1-60HF Grout. Specified by Vestas for its high compressive strength and easy workability, this product played a pivotal role in the project.

A Symphony of Collaboration and Innovation

The construction of Musselroe Wind Farm involved intricate operations such as the design, supply, and construction of the Musselroe substation and the 33kV reticulation for the turbines. The procurement and installation of power transformers, synchronous condenser units, D-Var Statcoms, and Filter Bank systems were part of this elaborate process. The project’s execution, managed efficiently, speaks volumes about the collaborative efforts of various stakeholders, including Danterr, contributing their expertise.

Environmental Impact and Legacy

The wind farm, a significant player in Tasmania’s renewable energy sector, is operated by Hydro Tasmania with a 25% stake, while China-based Shenhua Clean Energy holds the majority stake. Its 56 turbines, each with a generating capacity of 168 MW, can supply electricity to around 50,000 households, reducing CO2 emissions by 450,000 tonnes annually.
