Musselroe Wind Farm
Commissioned in 2013, the Musselroe Windfarm is a $450 million investment by Hydro Tasmania of 56 wind turbines with a generating capacity of 168 MW – Tasmania’s largest wind farm. A new transmission connects the wind farm to the electricity grid at Derby. Wind has been monitored at Musselroe site since the early 1980s and this data suggests that the area’s wind resource is world class. The site includes a Visitor Centre and is one of the very few wind farms where visitors can get 'up close and personal' with the turbines as the road winds among them.
