Mount Emerald Wind Farm, Far North QLD

RPS is assisting RATCH Australia Pty Ltd with the development of the MT Emerald Wind Farm at Springmount near Mareeba in Far North Queensland.

RPS completed an Environmental Impact Statement with the use of innovative technologies and detailed surveys. The EIS focuses primarily on potential impacts on threatened flora and fauna and World Heritage values.

Key issues for assessment of the project include potential impacts to birds and bats due to rotor strike or barotraumas and direct removal of species and habitat for threatened species within the access road and tower foot prints.
