Today, 19 May 2023, NZ Windfarms (NWF) announced that the repowering of its Te Rere Hau (TRH) wind farm has been granted a Fast-Track consent under the COVID-19 Recovery (Fast-track Consenting) Act 2020.

The successful application marks the first operational wind farm in New Zealand to gain a consent for a repowering, and the process has been significantly faster than the standard resource consenting process.

NWF is now making satisfactory progress on the critical commercial elements required to deliver the repower, and a final investment decision is yet to be made.
