Ensuring safe, sustainable and efficient energy.

Cathedral Rocks Wind Farm

Located in the remote area of the Eyre Peninsula, the Cathedral Rocks Wind Farm includes 33 wind turbines, generating 66 Mega Watts of clean energy and meeting the needs of approximately 35,000 households per year.

We primarily employed locals, sourced materials from local suppliers and contributed to the conservation of over 2,300 hectares of native vegetation and subsequently achieved a GreenPower accreditation. 

As the project was constructed on private farming land, the team took a highly cooperative approach to landholder liaison and land access negotiations. Striving for a mutually beneficial outcome for both the landholder and client, the client’s reputation remained outstanding within the community. In addition to the community, the team were also highly committed to health and safety, with their procedures and workplace culture resulting in zero ‘lost time injuries’ (LTIs).
