Tasmanian owned and operated business Haywards has been awarded an $8 million dollar contract for a major tower supply at the Cattle Hill Wind Farm.
This is a major win for the Launceston based company, who will produce 20 per cent of the tower components required for the 48 wind turbines at the wind farm.
It is also pleasing to note work at the Cattle Hill Wind Farm site has recommenced after temporally halting due to recent bush fires.
Tasmanian businesses have been engaged with the project since its inception, including Hobart based Hazell Bros who are undertaking the full civil and electrical works for the project, and Launceston based company Grandco, who are undertaking over $10 million of road upgrades in the Central Highlands region.
Construction of the Cattle Hill Wind Farm commenced in the middle of 2018, with the project expected to be fully operational at the end of this year.
In a boost to Tasmanian jobs, there are approximately 120 staff currently working on site, with up to 150 expected during construction peaks on site.
Once operational, the farm will produce clean energy to power approximately 63,500 Tasmanian homes while also supporting the Hodgman Liberal Governments Tasmania-First Energy policy to be 100 per cent self-sufficient in renewables by 2022.
