Goldwind Australia has signed a commercial agreement with TransGrid for the connection and construction of connection assets for Coppabella Wind Farm located in the Southern Tablelands of New South Wales, Australia, approximately 30 kilometres west of Yass.
Coppabella Wind Farm’s development manager Tom Nielsen said the agreement was a significant step in finalising the development of the wind farm.
The project has approval for up to 75 wind turbines that will produce approximately 900GWh per year of renewable energy.
“We are pleased to once again work with our long-term partner TransGrid to construct the connection assets and to operate and maintain the connection for Coppabella Wind Farm,” Nielsen added.
“TransGrid has a strong track record with Goldwind, having successfully delivered connection works on Gullen Range Wind Farm, Gullen Solar Farm, White Rock Wind Farm and White Rock Solar Farm.”
The project is expected to employ approximately 150 staff during the construction phase, and up to 15 permanent ongoing maintenance employees once operational.
