Stockyard Hill Wind Farm is a nominal 532 MW wind farm. 

Construction of the wind farm incorporates a diverse range of activities, including manufacture, delivery and erection of 149 3.x MW wind turbine generators, bulk earthworks and internal road construction (approx. 110km), public road modifications, construction of wind turbine foundations (inclusive of concrete, reinforcing steel & hold down assemblies), trenching and laying cable for underground electrical reticulation systems, substation construction (inclusive of power transformers, switchyard, electrical protection systems, switchrooms & substation automation system), high voltage export transmission line, lattice tower meteorological monitoring masts, construction of operations facility buildings and associated consulting services (environmental, geotechnical, design).

The project will be executed via a turn key EPC (Engineer Procure Construct) carried out by Goldwind Australia Pty Ltd who will be responsible for 2 main workstreams; 1) Supply and Install of Wind Turbines, and 2) Balance of Plant or BoP (roads, on site electrical etc). The BoP workstream will be subcontracted to a Procurement Entity who will in turn sub-contract out various work packages. 

The appointment of the BoP Procurement Entity is expected to occur in Q4 2017, with detailed pre-qualification and tendering of various work packages and construction work commencing on site in Q1 2018. The project is expected to be connected to the electricity grid by Q1 of 2019 with all turbines operational by the end of Q1 2020.  Work shall be carried out according to the following general prequalification criteria and standards noted at the end of this page.
