$600M Moorabool Wind Farm Project - Australian Tenders

Goldwind Australia Pty Ltd has today released 34 tenders for the construction and operation of the Moorabool Wind Farm south of Ballan in Victoria. Main Contractor will be appointed to engineer, procure and construct the $600M Moorabool Wind Farm.

The Moorabool Wind Farm project is located approximately 4km south of Ballan, 67km from Melbourne, 27km from Ballarat and 47km from Geelong. The wind farm will extend 14km north to south between Ballan and Mount Wallace to the west of the C141(Geelong-Ballan Rd).

The project is divided into two sections, the Bungeeltap Section towards the north of the project site and the Ballark Section to the south.

The project scope includes the construction and operation of 107 wind turbines and is expected to produce 1,100,000 MWh of electricity annually. This is enough renewable energy to power the equivalent of 223,000 average Victorian homes every year, representing 11% of Victorian homes. It will contribute to the Victorian Renewable Energy Target of 25% by 2020 and 40% by 2025.

The natural terrain and consistent wind speeds in the area are significant and the connection to the electricity network is also strong.                                                              

A Main Contractor will be appointed to engineer, procure and construct (EPC) the project.    

Expressions of Interest are currently being sought from suppliers and contractors for work packages including:
