Zenviron secures Crudine Ridge Wind Farm contract
Zenviron secures new balance-of-plant contract, and its first transport and erection contract, on NSW windfarm.
A consortium of Zenviron Pty Ltd (“Zenviron”), full service balance-of-plant (BoP) specialists, and GE Renewable Energy (“GE”), global leader in advanced technology focusing on wind, hydro and solar power generation, has been awarded a $200 million contract for the delivery of the 135MW Crudine Ridge Wind Farm in New South Wales.
Zenviron will design and construct the civil and electrical BoP works and carry out the transport and erection on the 37 wind turbine project, while GE will manufacture the turbines, deliver them to port and provide commissioning and technical assistance to the project.
Crudine Ridge Wind Farm is located approximately 45kms south of Mudgee in NSW. Once complete, the wind farm will provide enough electricity to power 55,000 homes per year. The project will contribute over $160,000 annually to the local region, through a community fund initiative, and bring up to 75 new jobs to the area.
Commenting on the contract win, Zenviron General Manager, Carl Keating, said: “For Zenviron, the Crudine Ridge Wind Farm contract represents key strategic progress, further developing our position as a leader in balance-of-plant works and expanding our service offering with the award of the transport and erection component of the project.”
The project is being developed by CWP Renewables, on behalf of Crudine Ridge Wind Farm Pty Ltd. CWP Renewables’ Chief Executive Officer, Alex Hewitt said: “With Zenviron’s strong performance on our Sapphire Wind Farm project, they were a natural selection for us to deliver Crudine Ridge, with GE.”
With early engineering works now complete, the project moves into the construction phase with practical completion expected in October 2019.
