SMEC provided a landscape and visual impact assessment for the proposed project to assess the potential landscape and visual impacts which may arise as a result of a variation to the current permitted project.
The works included the preparation of a number of project visualisations from representative viewpoints in the vicinity of the project.
The proposed Mortlake South Wind Farm is located approximately 190 km west of Melbourne and 50 km north east of Warrnambool. The wind farm will be constructed on cleared, open and level predominantly dairy farming country. The location is highly exposed to consistent winds across this part of the state.
Planning approval was granted by the State Government in 2010. The A$200m project will generate significant economic activity in the Moyne Shire and surrounds.
