Clarke Creek Wind Farm
Project at a glance
Procurement Engineering Specialist
Clarke Creek Wind, Solar and Battery power generation is owned by Squadron Energy and is now under construction, making it the biggest grid connected renewable energy project underway in Australia.
Stage One and Two will produce enough wind, solar and battery energy to power more than 660,000 homes, equivalent to 40 per cent of Queensland households, and will export lower cost electricity directly into the National Electricity Market, directly lowering power prices for millions of Queensland households and businesses.
Clarke Creek Wind Farm is located within the locality of Clarke Creek, approximately 150 kilometres north west of Rockhampton in Central Queensland. The wind farm extends approximately 55km north to south along the Broadsound Range.
The Queensland Government has approved the construction and operation of up to 195 wind turbines and ancillary civil and electrical infrastructure.
The first stage of the project is planned to include 100 Goldwind turbines totalling 450MW.
Construction for stage 1 is underway with a completion date in Q4 of 2024.
The project will be constructed by Windlab with two main BoP contractors. And four other main contract suppliers.
