Goldwind Australia has appointed Boom Logistics, a leading provider of crane logistics and related industrial services in Australia, to undertake the lifting, mechanical and electrical installation of 48 Goldwind wind turbine generators (WTGs) at the Cattle Hill Wind Farm on the eastern shore of Lake Echo in Tasmania.

The project started in February 2019 with revenue generated from this contract to be within a range of AU$13 to $16 million and expected completion in late 2019.

Tony Spassopoulos, Boom Logistics CEO, said, “We are delighted and proud to have been given the opportunity to work with Goldwind Australia, and provide the best possible crane lifting solution, on this important wind farm construction project. Our contract is a total lifting service that includes cranes, rigging, engineering, mechanical, electrical and project management on site.”

Boom is mobilising eight cranes to Tasmania, including two 750 tonne capacity cranes, to lift the 3 MW Goldwind turbines to a hub height of 100 metres. Boom currently provides crane lifting services to Goldwind Australia on scheduled maintenance programmes at other wind farm sites as required.
