First Sod Turned on 67-Turbine Boco

30/08/2013

Construction of the first 67 turbines on the Australian Boco Rock wind farm has officially commenced, following a ceremony at the site attended by key players including owners EGCO, local Federal Member of Parliament Mike Kelly, EPC contractors GE Energy and Downers, and the Wind Prospect CWP team.

The work represents the start of the first phase of the wind farm, which has approval for up to 122 wind turbines in total. Phase 1 alone will see the site achieve an installed capacity of 113MW.

Wind Prospect CWP will see the Boco Rock wind farm through to delivery and manage the farm on behalf of its owner, Thai-listed Electricity Generating Public Company Limited (EGCO).
In an interview with the local Cooma Monaro Express newspaper, Wind Prospect’s Adrian Oakey said:

“Clearing for the construction of the site facilities on Avon Lake Road has started and clearing of internal roads will continue through to the end of October. Right now the current activities for this first phase are establishing site facilities and roads which will take about three months.”
