Power and water consulting firm Entura has been appointed by Goldwind Australia to provide independent advice during the construction of the 175MW White Rock Wind Farm.

Located west of Glen Innes in the New England/Northern Tablelands region of New South Wales, White Rock Wind Farm will be larger than any currently operating wind farm in the state. Once completed, it will produce sufficient clean renewable energy to power approximately 75,000 homes and the project investment will exceed $400 million.

The project is jointly-owned by CECEP Wind-Power Corporation (CECWPC), which holds a 75 per cent interest, and Goldwind, which holds a 25 per cent interest. Goldwind Australia will provide engineering, procurement and construction services to the project as well as warranty operations and maintenance during the operations period.

Entura will act as independent advisor to Goldwind Australia during construction, providing engineering design review and site inspections for the balance of plant contract, which includes the main wind farm civil and electrical works.
