Noske delivers final wind farm component
After 14 months of managing the project, Noske Wind Energy Logistics has announced it has delivered the final component for the Macarthur Wind Farm site.
The $1 billion dollar Macarthur Wind Farm, owned by Meridian /AGL JV has been undertaken using Noske for the International & inland Australia transportation requirements in conjunction with the Vestas / Leighton Contractors JV consortium.
Mid last year, Noske was awarded the land transport, shipping and storage scopes for all tower and turbine components for the wind farm, with deliveries beginning in July last year, completing the delivery of 140 turbines late last week.
“We are proud to announce that upon completion of the transport scope for Macarthur wind farm we have successfully delivered 1,120 large over dimensional components, travelled 210,000 kilometres under escort and over 57,000 man hours with zero lost time injuries, zero incidents and zero component damage,” Tony Niske Executive Director Operations for Noske said.
Once fully operational, the wind farm will produce 420MW of renewable energy providing enough electricity to power an average 220,000 Victorian homes each year, cuttingf 1.7 million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions annually.
