La Lal Wind Farms

Macquarie Capital and InfraRed Capital Partners are planning to construct a 216MW wind farm on two sections of farmland - the Yendon Section, 2 kilometres east of Yendon and 17 kilometres southeast of Ballarat and the Elaine Section 2 kilometres north of Elaine and 17 kilometres south southeast of Ballarat in Victoria.

WestWind Energy identified the Lal Lal Wind Farm in 2006 as a potential wind farm site using WestWind Energy’s site selection criteria. In April 2009 the Victorian Planning Minister granted WestWind Energy a permit to construct and operate a 192MW Lal Lal Wind Farm.

In 2015, the planned capacity was increased to 216MW. In 2017, it was further increased to 228MW. Construction was planned to start by mid-2018 and to be completed in 2019.

Macquarie Capital purchased Lal Lal Wind Farm from WestWind Energy in 2017 and, in 2018, sold a 40% share to InfraRed Capital Partners.

Company: Macquarie Capital and InfraRed Capital Partners
