In addition to the wind turbines the site will have a metering and transformer building, operations centre, underground cables, temporary construction compound, access and site tracks and associated infrastructure. The wind farm will be metered at site then exported to an offsite substation via a 33kV underground cable. Mid Hill Wind Ltd. will be responsible for upgrading the existing forestry road and building new internal site tracks.
