Site Location and Layout
The Collgar Wind Farm is located approximately 25km south east of Merredin in Western Australia. The wind farm site comprises of approximately 18,000 hectares of private freehold land.
A turbine layout was prepared based on the technical assessment and community consultation undertaken during the development phase for inclusion in the planning application. The indicative layout provided was for 127 turbines; however, this layout has now been divided into two stages, the first consisting of 111 turbines, and a possible second stage of 16 turbines.
Construction of the first 111 turbines commenced in June 2010 and was completed in October 2011. The figures contained on this website relate to a project size of 111 wind turbines.
After a successful construction period and following the move to operations, Collgar Wind Farm elected to refinance its senior debt facilities, this transcation successfully closed in late November 2013.
Terms of the new debt facilities reflect the quality of the Asset, its operations and its relationship with stakeholders.

A UNIQUE partnership between a giant wind farm, a 1920s theatre and a leading Australian puppetry company will see the stories and characters of a Wheatbelt town take centre stage in a new theatre show to premiere in a year's time.
Joining with the Shire of Merredin and Collgar Wind Farm, Spare Parts Puppet Theatre will visit Merredin to immerse itself in the lives of the community from November 11 to 22.
This is the first of two residencies as part of the development of a new show called Farm, which will premiere at Cummins Theatre in September next year.
Last Tuesday, Collgar Wind Farm chief executive Thomas Scott-Morey presented a $20,000 cheque, the first instalment, to Spare Parts Puppet Theatre. The second instalment will be presented in time for the theatre company's second residency program in Merredin around March next year.
