There will be a community information meeting for the Snowtown Wind Farm project, on Thursday, February 15, 6.30 pm, at the Snowtown Bowling Club, Centenary Park.
TrustPower has recently contracted Suzlon Energy Australia Pty Ltd to design and construct the Snowtown Wind Farm, and is keen to keep the local community “up to speed” with the project’s progress.
The wind farm is to consist of forty-two 2.1 megawatt wind turbines and will be located on the Hummocks and Barunga Ranges.
“We’re committed to keeping everyone informed of the activities that will take place during both the initial construction phase and the future operation of the wind farm”, says Andrew Dickson, on behalf of proponent Wind Prospect Pty Ltd.
“The first of these information sessions is on February 15, and we invite all interested people to meet senior members of the project team, including TrustPower and Suzlon Project Managers”, Andrew said.
Deion Campbell and Peter Reed, TrustPower’s site representatives, Andrew Dickson from Wind Prospect, together with project personnel from ElectraNet (contracted to construct the high voltage substation and transmission line, which will connect the new wind farm into the existing ElectraNet State power grid) will attend the meeting, as will the major civil and electrical subcontractors who will be involved in the project, Built Environs and Downer Engineering.
Suzlon’s Peter Reed will lead the information session, introduce the other parties and outline the overall project activities and scheduled start and completion dates.
“More importantly though, he is there to answer any questions you may have and is particularly interested in hearing from people who may want to become involved in the project,” Andrew said.
“We look forward to this opportunity to meet with the community informally and share information over a drink and a snack.”
For more advance information, contact Andrew Dickson on 0418 866 470 or Peter Reed on 0439 344 462.
