2017 has seen the start of construction for icubed consulting’s largest wind farm to date. Comprised of 75 individual Wind Turbine Generators the Sapphire Wind Farm located between the townships of Glen Innes and Inverell, marks another significant step towards reaching Australia’s 2020 Renewable Energy Target.
This flagship project for the icubed renewable’s team will be the largest capacity wind farm in NSW featuring the tallest turbines in Australia. The 270 MW generational capacity will supply the eastern power grid enough energy to supply approximately 110,000 homes with clean energy.
Having already undertaken a detailed geotechnical investigation programme on site, the current works are related to establishment of the construction compound and on-site batch plant. icubed are looking to mobilise a full time site engineer for on-the-ground engineering support in the following weeks to ease the construction and design interface during the busiest phases of the project.
