Moorabool Wind Farm 132kV Connection

Gateway Energy

Project: Moorabool Wind Farm 132kV Connection

Owner: PowerCor

Engineering Contractor: Beon Energy Solutions

Project Location: Central Victoria (VIC), Australia (west of Melbourne)

Design Location: Brisbane, Queensland, Australia

Detail: This project involved supply of approximately 200 poles and landing gantries to connect to the existing Mt Mercer Wind farm, including base plate and in-ground poles.

Benefit: A proven track record of quality and service meant we were able to work flawlessly with the design team early on to develop unique solutions for this project.  Some poles were utilising very high tension stays so Gateway Energy performed specific Finite Element Analysis on pole attachments and body section to ensure everything would work as a system.  Gateway Energy was also engaged to supply a poles and conductor package solution for this project with over 315km of Selenium AAAC Conductor supplied.

Other Locations: Gateway Energy also supplies similar projects in Hobart and Launceston – Tasmania, Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch – New Zealand, Lae and Port Moresby – Papua New Guinea (PNG)
