OVERVIEW

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

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.

TRANSMISSION

LOCATION

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.
