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 recently approved the construction and operation of up to 195 wind turbines and ancillary civil and electrical infrastructure.
The Project is currently in the final phases of feasibility and will inform the final investment decision in mid 2019. Construction is planned to start in Mid-2019 and be completed by mid 2021.
Lacour Energy has partnered with Goldwind Australia to deliver the Project. Goldwind will supply wind turbines to the project and manage construction works.
Major subcontractors will be appointed for the following work packages:
- Design and construction of the civil and electrical balance of plant (onsite roads, foundations, buildings and electrical reticulation);
- Logistics; and
- Wind turbine installation.
Smaller work packages are available (listed below) to assist with the above mentioned work packages.
Local Business Participation Program
Lacour Energy and Goldwind Australia are committed to facilitating local sourcing for the Project where feasible through a Local Business Participation Program. Under the first stage of the Program local industry can register their interest in specific work packages (listed below) on ICN Gateway. During the second stage an Industry Briefing will be held in the local area hosted by Goldwind Australia and major subcontractors. Stage Three, spanning Project construction and transition into operations phase, will allow the major subcontractors to engage subcontractors.
