Contact Energy Ltd. said it won approval to build a NZ$500 million wind farm on the North Island. The Environment Court of New Zealand in Wellington overturned the April 2009 rejection of the Waitahora wind development by three commissioners of the Tararua District and Horizons Regional Council.

The proposed wind farm, southeast of Dannevirke in Southern Hawke’s Bay, will generate about 156MW. The proposal was scaled back from 65 turbines to either 58 125-meter turbines or 52 150-meter-high ones, following the commissioners’ rejection and complaints from residents. The company hasn’t yet determined when construction on the wind farm will begin.
