Stockyard Hill Wind Farm Project – Civil Works

Site Location: 35km West of Ballarat, VIC
Client: Goldwind Australia (Zinfra / Ausnet)
Duration: June 2018 – May 2019

Stockyard Hill Wind Farm was developed by Goldwind Australia, consisting of 149 turbines with a total capacity of 530 MW with a potential to power up to 390,000 homes annually.

Ausnet services were contracted by Goldwind and the Australian Energy Market Operator to build, own and operate a transmission connection for the wind farm.

A new connection consisting of a 70km 132kV monopole transmission line was developed to take the power from the wind farm south to a new substation, Haunted Gully Terminal Station, near Lismore. This connected to the 500kV network.

Inoteq were contracted through Zinfra, to construct all monopole foundations (279 structures) for the transmission line and an additional 6 x 500kV transmission tower foundations.

The foundations installed are all bored pier foundations, up to 2.7m in diameter and 10m deep.
