Crudine Ridge Wind Farm
37 wind turbines with a generation capacity of approximately 135 MW
The project is expected to commence construction in early 2018
Delivered by world leaders in renewable energy
The Crudine Ridge Wind Farm is a 135MW wind energy project situated approximately 45 km south of Mudgee, NSW.
The project received approval from the NSW Planning Assessment Commission on May 10, 2016, and Commonwealth Minister for the Environment and Energy on April 4, 2017.
The project will consist of 37 wind turbine generators, internal access roads and electrical reticulation, a substation, switching station and 15 km of 132 kV transmission line. The project is expected to commence construction in early 2018 and local suppliers and contractors are encouraged to register their interest by completing the contractor register below.
Crudine Ridge Wind Farm encourages local contractors and service providers to tender for the supply of goods and services during construction and operation of the wind farm.
Project construction will be delivered by a consortium involving GE Renewable Energy and Zenviron. GE Renewable Energy will supply the wind turbine generators and Zenviron will execute the onsite construction activities, turbine component transport and also turbine erection activities. Contractors and service providers are encouraged to apply for relevant subcontracts through the Project’s page on the ICN Gateway website.
Crudine Ridge Wind Farm is currently preparing to commence construction. When complete, this large scale renewable energy project will provide enough electricity to power 57,500 homes each year.
- The estimated annual greenhouse gas savings from the project is 357,954 tonnes of CO2 equivalent.
- The wind farm will contribute over $160,000 per year to the community through the Mid-western and Bathurst Regional Council Community Funds to support local community projects and initiatives.
- The project will bring many economic benefits to the NSW’s Central West. Approximately 75 new jobs will be created as well significant contracting opportunities for local businesses.
