Trustpower set to expand South Australian wind farm

The Tauranga-based listed firm says the 270 megawatt wind farm near Adelaide is expected to cost up to $439 million, a decrease of 6% from earlier estimates.

Trustpower chief executive Vince Hawkesworth says the strong Australian dollar has been to its advantage.

He says the project has all the characteristics of what a good wind farm should have including being well positioned in the transmission network and having good reliable wind.
