Aurecon is currently acting as owner’s engineer for the construction phase of Collgar Wind Farm in Western Australia. Aurecon is providing project management, design review, onsite supervision and environmental monitoring for our client Collgar Wind Farm – a joint venture between UBS Infrastructure Asset Management and Retail Employees Superannuation Trust.
Aurecon supported the acquisition of the Collgar project from Investec by undertaking detailed technical and environmental due diligence prior to financial close.
When completed by April 2012, the wind farm will more than double Western Australia’s renewable energy generation, producing enough energy to power 125,000 homes. The project consists of 111 wind turbines for a total generation of 206 MW across an area of around 18 km by 8 km.
