The installation will include the lifting, mechanical and electrical installation of the generators as Boom embarks on its first contract with the company.
Boom is mobilising eight cranes to Tasmania, including two 750-tonne capacity cranes to lift 3 mega watts Goldwind turbines to a hub height of 100 metres.
“A total lifting service”
Boom Logistics chief executive officer Tony Spassopoulos 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.
“We are pleased to be delivering on our strategy to strengthen our market position in the wind farm sector and to also work with Goldwind Australia to further build on our partnership.”
GE Coopers Gap Project
The company is also working on a wind farm construction project with GE at Coopers Gap in Queensland, which includes the installation of 56 WTGs.
The project is expected to generate around $16 – 16 million in revenue.
$390 million sales pipeline
The wind farm sector remains an exciting growth opportunity for Boom with a sales pipeline of $390 million over the next two years.
Spassopoulos added: “The renewable energy market is thriving as we continue to expand our wind farm business projects, demonstrating our cabability as the leading Australian crane lifting solutions provider.”
