Zenviron, in consortium with Vestas, delivered the 54MW Salt Creek Wind Farm for Tilt Renewables. Salt Creek Wind Farm, which is located in Western Victoria, features 15 Vestas V126 – 3.6MW turbines and has been fully operational since July 2018. 

The Salt Creek Wind Farm contains 15 Vestas V126-3.6MW wind turbines and produces about 172GWh of clean energy each year. This has the potential to power more than 30,000 homes – enough energy to meet the needs of a town more than twice the size of Warrnambool. 

As of August 2020, Salt Creek Wind Farm continues to meet expectations when it comes to generation and availability. The site has so far generated 169,240 MWh, which is the equivalent to powering approx. 33,000 households per year, removing approx. 182,000 tonnes of greenhouse gases from the atmosphere - the equivalent of removing 60,000 cars from the road.

Zenviron carried out the Civil and Electrical Balance of Plant (BOP) on the site as consortium partner of Vestas Australian Wind Technology. The project is situated on a highly significant award-winning merino stud and requires the highest levels of stakeholder management, with the property owners and the property manager. This was one of the great successes of the project. 

The project included:

  • The design and construction of the 66kV Substation

  • MV underground cabling

  • 15km of Access tracks

  • Crane Hardstands and WTG Foundations. 

The project scope also included the major upgrade of the Hexham - Woorndoo Road for the Moyne Shire Council which has provided added benefits to the community. An Operation and Maintenance facility was also constructed on the site by Zenviron.
