Warradarge Wind Farm is being constructed in the Shire of Coorow and Shire of Carnamah, approximately 250 km north of Perth in Western Australia. The 180 MW wind farm will be comprised of 51 Vestas V136-3.6MW wind turbines with a hub height of 84 m.
Vestas required assistance during the tender and post-award phase of the project to assess whether their turbines and layout could meet the environmental noise criteria applying around the site.
Resonate were engaged by Vestas during the tender phase of the project to predict noise levels at residential land uses to assess whether compliance with the noise criteria could be achieved. We worked progressively with Vestas throughout the layout design to efficiently assess layouts as they evolved and to provide clear graphical outputs that Vestas could use to communicate with their customer.
Following project award, Resonate was engaged to conduct updated background noise monitoring at 10 locations around the wind farm to ensure that an accurate and up-to-date baseline was available for assessing whether the operational wind farm was achieving compliance with the noise criteria.
Resonate completed updated background for the wind farm in early 2019. The Warradarge Wind Farm is currently under construction and is planned for first energisation in late 2020.
