WBHO delivering Yaloak South Wind Farm in Victoria

A WBHO-RCR Tomlinson Joint Venture will deliver Pacific Hydro’s Yaloak South Wind Farm. The 14-turbine, 29MW development site is situated in the Parwan Valley 15km southwest of Bacchus Marsh. Site works will commence early 2017, with the wind farm is expected to be operational in early 2018.

When completed, the development will be one of the closest wind farms to Melbourne, and will be capable of producing enough electricity to power 15,700 homes and abate approximately 70,667 tonnes of greenhouse gas pollution per year.

David McPadden, WBHO’s Eastern Region General Manager, said:

“WBHO is excited to be delivering this important development with our joint venture partner and Pacific Hydro. The wind farm will extend and expand WBHO’s presence in Victoria, where we are also delivering the Princes Highway Upgrade Section 1 for VicRoads.

“WBHO has a ‘local first’ employment policy, and a key focus in the weeks and months ahead will be maximising opportunities for local skilled labourers and trainees to join us on site to deliver the works.”
