This website has been set up to be an ongoing source of information for the community and other stakeholders about the Yandin Wind Farm. It will be updated with key documents, findings and images as they become available.
Until October 2015, the Yandin Wind Farm was developed with the Waddi Wind Farm and together they were described as the Dandaragan Wind Farms. Since then, Alinta Energy has acquired an interest in the Yandin Wind Farm, which has approval for up to 94 wind turbines and is located approximately 4km south of the township of Dandaragan.
Alinta Energy is a fast-growing Australian energy generator and retailer with an owned and contracted generation portfolio of around 3,000MW and over one million combined electricity and gas retail customers in Australia. Alinta Energy employs over 700 people throughout operations across five of Australia’s six states as well as New Zealand. Alinta Energy’s intention is for the Yandin Wind Farm to form part of its growing renewable energy portfolio.
It is now proposed to amend the planning approval in order to increase the wind turbine tip height from 152m to 180m. This would allow for a rotor diameter of up to 140m, which would significantly increase electrical energy generation, thereby maximising the output from the wind farm site.
