Wind farm on cards


A wind farm granted resource consent in 2005 may finally get off the ground with Meridian Energy seeking interest from potential contractor­s this month. The state-owned electricit­y company holds two resource consents to build wind farms on neighbouri­ng sites on Maungahuru­ru Range, about 34km northwest of Napier. The consents were issued in 2005 to Hawke’s Bay Wind Farm and Unison Networks for up to 32 turbines and 15 turbines respective­ly. The consents were purchased by Meridian in 2010 and 2011, and combined as one site. A Meridian spokeswoma­n said the registrati­on of interest (ROI) process would identify the availabili­ty of potential contractor­s.
