Powerful Proposition

NZ utility TrustPower plans to construct what will be the southern hemisphere’s most technologically advanced wind farm in the Tararua Ranges this year. By adding 40 latest model turbines to its facility’s existing 103, TrustPower will increase the farm’s energy output to 187.9 MW. If the proposal is accepted, the NZ $220 million project should be completed by the end of 2006.
