The wind farm construction project with GE at Coopers Gap in Queensland is progressing well. BOOM was awarded the contract to undertake the lifting, mechanical and electrical installation of 56 WTGs on the Coopers Gap wind farm project and is expected to generate approximately $14-16 million in revenue.
The Coopers Gap wind farm of 123 WTGs will be one of Australia’s largest wind farms upon completion in 2019.
BOOM delivered a new LG 750 tonne mobile crane for this project to do the major lifts, which are over 115 metres high. In addition to the main crane, this project utilises five other mobile cranes on site.
Tony Spassopoulos, CEO of BOOM Logistics, further comments: “We have a great team on site, focused on customer service, project delivery and safety always. We continue to expand our wind farm projects business and demonstrate our capability as the leading Australian crane lifting solutions provider in this market segment.”
