Penalty Notice issued to Goldwind Australia Pty Ltd (MP07_0118) Upper Lachlan Shire LGA
On 27 September 2022, the department issued a $15,000 Penalty Notice to Goldwind Australia Pty Ltd (Goldwind) as the company who has control and management of the Gullen Range Wind Farm, for operating a small number of turbines at times that contravened the conditions of consent imposed to protect the Powerful Owl. There is no evidence to suggest that any Powerful Owls were affected by the breach. Goldwind admitted to the breach and have since implemented measures to ensure that future non-compliances do not occur. The department will continue to monitor compliance with conditions of approval.
