Zenviron with Vestas secure another wind farm. The Salt Creek Wind Farm Project will represent an important contribution to Australia’s Renewable Energy Target.
Salt Creek Wind Farm
A consortium of Zenviron Pty Ltd (“Zenviron”) and Vestas – Australian Wind Technology Pty Ltd (“Vestas”) has been awarded a contract for the delivery of the 54MW Salt Creek Wind Farm for Tilt Renewables.
Balance-of-Plant (BoP) specialists Zenviron will again partner with Vestas to execute the civil and electrical BoP works, while Vestas, a world-leader in wind energy solutions, will supply and install the 15 wind turbines.
Tilt Renewables released a statement last week that the Salt Creek Wind Farm Project will go ahead. Tilt Renewables stated the 54 MW wind farm has good investment fundamentals and is supported by proven technology and construction partners Vestas, Zenviron and AusNet Services; and a robust long-term operations and maintenance agreement.
This is another project in consortium between Vestas and Zenviron building on a successful partnership to deliver renewable wind projects to the market and a key win in Zenviron’s strategic planning to become the leading provider of Balance of Plant services to the renewable energy market.
The Salt Creek Wind Farm Project, located in Western Victoria, is expected to generate sufficient energy to power 30,000+ homes, and represents an important contribution to Australia’s Renewable Energy Target.
Early design works on the project commenced on 31 May with practical completion expected in July 2018.
Sapphire Wind Farm
A consortium of Zenviron Pty Ltd and Vestas – Australian Wind Technology Pty Ltd has been awarded a $430 million contract for the delivery of the 270MW Sapphire Wind Farm in northern New South Wales (NSW).
Zenviron will deliver the civil and electrical balance of plant works while Vestas will supply and install the wind turbines. Early design works on the project commenced in July 2016 with practical completion expected in the second half of 2018.
The Sapphire Wind Farm is situated 18km west of Glen Innes and 28km west of Inverell in the New England Tablelands. Once installed, Sapphire Wind Farm will be the largest capacity wind farm in NSW with the tallest machines in Australia at a hub height of 137m. Once operational, the wind farm will supply the equivalent of approximately 110,000 houses with clean energy and abate carbon dioxide emissions by approximately 600,000 tonnes per annum.
