PRESS RELEASE

Goldwind Australia announced today the final Goldwind wind turbine generator components have arrived at Cattle Hill Wind Farm project site in the Central Highlands of Tasmania.
Transportation of Goldwind turbine components started in March, following $10 million of road upgrades in the Central Highlands area by the Launceston based company, Gradco.
Approximately 528 oversize loads have been transported to the project site, with twenty per cent of tower components being manufactured locally by Haywards and transported from Launceston to the project site.
Leigh Walters, Goldwind Project Director for the Cattle Hill Wind Farm, said the final delivery is a significant milestone for the project.
‘Achievement of this project milestone reflects a team effort by many project partners, I would like to acknowledge the work of all those involved. 
‘I would also like to thank the local community. We really appreciate the patience and understanding of the communities along the delivery route, especially those who experienced any delays or inconvenience as a result of the blade rollover incident in September. Any further oversize deliveries to site will be limited to spare or additional components. 
‘Construction of the project is progressing well, with an approximate workforce of 150 personnel on site. 22 of 48 Goldwind turbines have been fully installed, with two main cranes now installing on site. Pre-commissioning of turbines has been ongoing and generation commissioning is planned to commence in the next few weeks. Commissioning of the IdentiFlight system is ongoing with the turbine commissioning.’ commented Leigh.
Once operational, Cattle Hill Wind Farm will produce enough clean energy to power the equivalent of approximately 63,500 Tasmanian homes.
