Leading renewable energy company Squadron Energy is calling for expressions of interest for qualified contractors for Spicers Creek Wind Farm in New South Wales.

The 700MW wind farm in the Central-West Orana Renewable Energy Zone (CWO REZ) is currently going through NSW and Federal government planning approvals.

Following a strategic alliance with GE Vernova in which Squadron Energy has secured an advance order of wind turbines, Squadron Energy is now calling for expressions of interest for a range of work packages on the Spicers Creek project.

The procurement process will run throughout 2024/25 and pending planning approvals and the outcome of the CWO REZ Access Rights process, work on the project is expected to start in 2025/26.

Acting Executive General Manager Delivery Dan Banovic said the EOI would ensure teams are ready to go as soon as possible.

“We’re on a mission to deliver green energy as quickly as possible to replace aging coal fired power stations and meet our ambition of launching 14GW of new projects by 2030. Running a procurement process while we work through the final stages of approvals means we can move into delivery in a timely manner,” Mr Banovic said.

Various work packages are on offer in the following areas:

  • civil balance of plant work scopes
  • electrical balance of plant work scopes
  • operation and maintenance building design and construction
  • accommodation camp for workers.

“We are looking for a range of contractors to work on this flagship project and look forward to receiving feedback to help inform the tender process and our delivery strategy.”

Expressions of interest can be submitted online at www.squadronenergy.com/spicers-creek-wind-farm-eoi and close Thursday 11 July 2024.

Spicers Creek Wind Farm is a proposed 117 turbine wind farm located on Wiradjuri Country, west of Gulgong and 25km northeast of Wellington.

The project is expected to generate enough electricity to power more than 395,000 homes and prevent 650,000 tonnes of emissions annually.

Spicers Creek Wind Farm is expected to create more than 330 jobs and inject $46.9 million into the regional economy during construction.

Local contractors and service providers are also encouraged to register their interest for supplying goods and services.
