Power and water consulting firm Entura has announced a partnership with engineering and infrastructure company RCR Tomlinson to deliver Pacific Hydro’s 30MW Yaloak South Wind Farm in Victoria.
Located at the western end of the Parwan Valley, near Ballan, approximately one hour from Melbourne, the 30MW Yaloak South Wind Farm will comprise 14 Senvion turbines.
When completed, the wind farm will be capable of producing enough electricity to power 15,700 homes and abate approximately 70,667 tonnes of greenhouse gas pollution per year.
“We’re delighted to be working with RCR on this exciting project that will contribute to the introduction of more renewable energy to the Australian National Electricity Market,” Entura managing director Tammy Chu said.
RCR’s scope of work includes engineering, procurement, construction (EPC) and commissioning of the Balance of Plant works, which comprises site access roads, hardstands, fences, drainage, wind turbine foundations, substation, electrical reticulation and control system.
Entura will undertake the electrical Balance of Plant design of substations and Medium-Voltage (MV) collection system.
This engagement follows the appointment of Entura as independent advisor to Goldwind Australia during construction of the White Rock Wind Farm to provide engineering design review and site inspections for the balance of plant contract, which includes the main wind farm civil and electrical works.
