PROJECT DESCRIPTION

A joint venture between BMD Constructions and Consolidated Power Projects (CPP) Australia Pty Ltd has been awarded a contract to deliver Global Power Generation Australia’s $200 million Crookwell 2 Wind Farm development, located 35-kilometres north of Goulburn in New South Wales. The 91MW wind farm, once completed, will be able to produce up to 320-GWh (gigawatt hours) of renewable energy annually for homes in Canberra from 28 turbines, contributing to the capital’s 100 per cent renewable energy target.

The project is going to be delivered under a Balance of Plant (BoP) contract which comprises the design and construction of about 23-kilometres of gravel access tracks with drainage, 28 concrete foundations for the turbines as well as construction of hardstands and crane platforms.
