The 250MW Snowtown Wind Farm Stage II development was constructed on the Barunga Ranges near Snowtown in rural South Australia and comprises 90, 3MW wind turbine generators.
We were appointed as the Electrical Balance of Plant contractor for this project which comprised the design, supply, installation and commissioning of the wind farm 33kV underground reticulation, wind farm 275/33kV substation and 33kV internal overhead line.
We designed, supplied, constructed and commissioned 14.5km’s of dual circuit and 5km’s of single circuit 33kV overhead line support by steel monopoles including an access track along the length of the OHL and crane pads at each pole location. We used a helicopter to string the overhead line conductor to accelerate the program.
