Final concrete pour at Coopers Gap - Mar 19 2019

The Coopers Gap concrete project has come to a close with the final pour of concrete for the 123rd wind turbine on Tuesday 12 February.

Wagners were contracted to pour the concrete foundations for all 123 wind turbines and have been working on the project for the last nine months.

Well done Coopers Gap Project Team. But as with all major projects, it’s those in the background supporting the team that make the difference. Support from our Administration, Workshop, Transport, Quarry and Cement divisions ensured this project was a success.

 

About Coopers Gap Wind Farm

Located 250km north west of Brisbane near Cooranga North, between Dalby and Kingaroy, the wind farm is the second greenfield project developed by Powering Australian Renewables Fund (PARF) and will have the capacity to power 264,000 average Aussie homes.

 

Installation fast fact

Colossal structures such as these wind turbines require an even larger structure to lift them into place. It took 20 truckloads of crane pieces then 2.5 weeks to assemble the main crane, an LT1750, on site to be able to lift and assemble the turbines.
