Point Of Interest

Has not been rated.


There are currently forty eight V47-660kW Vestas wind turbines at the Tararua Wind Farm. Each is mounted on a 40 metre steel lattice tower. The three blades are 23.5 metres long and have the ability to feather in different conditions to maintain a relatively constant speed of 28.5 revolutions per minute. The turbines can also turn to capture winds from different directions. The turbines have the capacity to generate 31.7 Megawatts of energy - which is roughly enough to meet the electricity requirements of 15,000 homes. Public access is available via Hall Block Road in Ballance, and a variety of tours and adventure activities are also available to tourists.
