We have had a chilly start to winter at Crudine Ridge and our commissioning and operations teams battled the elements to keep the project on track, whilst also managing to capture some amazing photos of the wind farm covered in snow. We continue to bring turbines online in accordance with the regulator’s requirements and continue increasing the generation from the plant with 25 turbines now connected. Civil works have been completed and the rehabilitation is coming along as we move closer to Practical Completion of the project.
This will be my final welcome as part of the construction newsletters. Myself and the project team have enjoyed seeing this project to completion and I would like to acknowledge the hard work of all the contractors who have been involved in the project and also the support from local businesses and the community. The construction of the Crudine Ridge Wind farm has brought over 240 jobs and over $20m of investments to the region. Once completed the wind farm will generate enough electricity to supply 55,000 homes and will contribute to NSW and Australia achieving its emission reduction targets. I leave Brad Jachmann, our Crudine Ridge Operations Manager to be your ongoing local contact person and I am certain that Brad will be happy to offer assistance and information if and when needed for the future operations of the wind farm. Brad’s contact details are shown further below in the newsletter.
