The final project report outlines the economic and commercial case for FCAS participation by wind farms and the results of enabling frequency controllers at Musselroe Wind Farm.
Musselroe Wind Farm (“MRWF”) located at Cape Portland in the Northeast of Tasmania comprises 56 V90 Vestas turbines with an installed capacity of 168 MW.
The facility is owned and operated by Woolnorth Wind Farm Holding Pty Ltd (trading as Woolnorth Renewables (“WNR”)), who also own and operate the Studland Bay (75 MW capacity) and Bluff Point (65 MW capacity) wind farms located in the Northwest of Tasmania).
MRWF is connected to the Tasmanian network via a 48km 110 kV single circuit dedicated transmission line from the wind farm to the Tasmanian shared network at Derby. Derby is located approximately 120km from Georgetown the Regional Reference Node (RRN) for Tasmania.
