About Us

New Gullen Range Wind Farm Pty Ltd is the proponent and is jointly owned, 75% Beijing

Jingneng Clean Energy (Hong Kong) Co., Limited and 25% Goldwind Australia.

The 330kV switchyard is owned by TransGrid and the power exported from the wind farm

will be purchased by Energy Australia.

 

The project was originally planned by Epuron. A Major Project Application was lodged by

Epuron in 2007 under Part 3A of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act, 1979.

Following receipt of the Director-General’s Requirements for assessment, Epuron prepared

the Environmental Assessment and this was submitted to Department of Planning and

Environment in 2008. The Minister determined the application in June 2009, however the

determination was appealed. Three appeals were subsequently heard simultaneously by the

Land and Environment Court. Project Approval was granted by the Land and Environment

Court in August 2010.

 

Epuron sold the GRWF project to Goldwind on 28 January 2011 and construction

commenced in September 2012. Goldwind Australia is the Engineering, Procurement and

Construction (EPC) contractor for the GRWF project. Catcon/Consolidated Power Projects

were contracted for the Balance of Plant (civil and electrical works). Wind turbine erection

has been undertaken by Windhoist and Kepple Prince Engineering. UGL undertook contract

work for the substation.

 

In July 2014, Goldwind sold a 75% share of the project to JingNeng. Goldwind Australia is

continuing the EPC management for Gullen Range Wind Farm.

 

Jingneng owns and operates 17 wind farms (total capacity of 1,095 MW) in Inner Mongolia,

Beijing and Liaoning province.

 

Goldwind has previously constructed and is now operating the Mortons Lane Wind Farm in

Victoria. Mortons Lane Wind Farm (19.5MW) comprises 13 GW 82-1.5MW turbines that

use the Goldwind Permanent Magnet Direct Drive (PMDD) technology. These turbines were

the first built in Australia to use the PMDD technology.
