The foundations for three turbines have been completed, after a concrete pour consisting of 500m3 of concrete. Further foundations and access track construction will continue with turbine component delivery and erection beginning early next year.

Moorabool North and Moorabool South wind farms consist of up to 107 Goldwind advanced technology turbines. Once operational, together, they will produce clean energy to power approximately 230,500 Victorian homes.

Goldwind Australia is performing the Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) role during construction of the project and will then perform the ongoing Warranty, Operations and Maintenance (WOM) role once the project is operational. Goldwind Australia has appointed Zenviron as the Balance of Plant construction contractor for the project.
