Neoen acknowledges the Gunditjmara people, Traditional Owners of the land on which Kentbruck Wind Farm will harvest the energy of the wind. We pay our respects to their Elders past and present.


Neoen, along with a range of other Government agencies are working together in order to fully investigate the environmental impacts of the
project. This is occurring through an Environment Effects Statement (EES), a process that is administered by the Department of Transport and Planning (DTP). Neoen and the group of Government agencies working on the EES is jointly called the Technical Reference Group (TRG).

The specific environmental matters to be investigated and documented in the Project’s EES are set out in the Scoping Requirements, which were issued in February 2020 following public consultation. A total of 20 technical studies have been undertaken to assess the potential impacts of the Project and inform the EES. These are on a range of topics including biodiversity, cultural heritage, noise, visual impact, traffic management and more.

Neoen is working to have the studies available on public exhibition in early 2024.

For more information about the EES process you can visit the Victorian Government’s website. This website also has specific documents regarding the Kentbruck Green Power Hub.

Safeguarding Ecology

Neoen is committed to configuring the project to ensure minimal environmental impacts and to safeguard the local ecology.

The project has been sited in a pine plantation in order to reduce the environmental and biodiversity impacts associated with removing native vegetation.

Climate change is a major threat to coastal ecology. Once operational, Kentbruck Green Power Hub will reduce CO2 emissions by 3.5 million tonnes per year.


There is a vertical buffer above the pine trees and below the turbine blades, and to some extent the height of the wind turbines can be
adjusted depending on survey results.
