Emu Downs Wind Farm

The Emu Downs wind farm is a 79.2 MW wind farm, located 30 kilometres east of Cervantes in Western Australia. It was a joint development between Stanwell Corporation and Griffin Energy. The site is approximately 200 kilometres north of Perth, near Cervantes. Construction of the $180 million project commenced in November 2005, and the project was commissioned in October 2006.

Emu Downs wind farm consists of 48 wind turbines, a substation, interconnection to the main electricity grid, administration and stores buildings and a network of access roads.

The wind farm provides electricity to run the Kwinana Desalination Plant, located just south of Perth.

Following the collapse of Griffin Energy, the wind farm was sold in June 2011 to the APA Group (Australia's largest gas infrastructure business).

In July 2013, the APA Group announced that it wanted to establish a 20MW solar power facility within the wind farm.
