Clean energy for Queensland
Kaban Green Power Hub is a renewable energy project located in the Atherton Tablelands of Far North Queensland.
It consists of a 157 MW wind farm with approval for a 100 MW battery, and a network upgrade.
The project has a power purchase agreement with CleanCo to provide energy in support of Queensland’s target of 50% renewable electricity by 2030.
Wind turbines are tall structures that can capture stronger winds at higher altitudes. At Kaban there will be 28 wind turbines which will be 226m in height to the tip of the blade.
The project includes a 320 km transmission line upgrade from 132 to 275 kV of the North Queensland coastal circuit which runs from Cairns to Townsville.
Kaban Green Power Hub is located near the town of Ravenshoe, around 80km southwest of Cairns.
The location was chosen because it is very windy and has a 275kV high voltage transmission line running through the site.
The wind generation profile in Far North Queensland is different and complementary to other wind farms in the southern and eastern parts of the National Electricity Market.

Neoen are pleased to announce that we have received our EPBC Approval from the Department of Agriculture, Water, and the Environment for the Kaban Green Power Hub.
With 12 years’ experience behind us, our technologies are tried, tested and proven. Our South Australian Big Battery has been keeping the lights on in SA since 2017, and saved consumers over $116 million in 2019 alone !
We own and operate all of the projects we build (rather than developing them to be sold) and as long-term neighbours we are committed to sharing the benefits with surrounding communities.
This dedication to community and environment has made us a renewable energy developer of choice across Australia.
