Yandin Wind Farm
WGA completed the structural and civil design, including construction support for the Yandin Wind Farm project in Western Australia for Decmil Australia. The project is a 214MW wind farm consisting of 51 Wind Turbine Generators (WTGs) and included approximately 40 km’s of access roads.
Our Geotechnical Engineers assessed all of the site investigation tests to ensure the optimal foundation design provided by the Structural team, could be utilised at all locations. In the end, whilst several locations needed some localised over-excavation, all sites utilised the optimal concrete foundation with a low 105 kg/m3 reinforcing rate.
The civil component involved the design of access roads, hardstand areas at each turbine, and all associated drainage requirements. The wind farm crosses many council roads and therefore several intersection designs were also required.
