Project Overview

Agnew Gold Mine at Agnew is approximately 25km west of Leinster in the northern goldfields region of Western Australia. Mine energy consumption is transitioning from diesel generation to a hybrid solution that combines solar, wind, battery and gas generation.

The Wind Farm will consist of up to five (5) GW140 3.57MW Wind Turbines at a hub height of 110m and with a total name-plate rated capacity of 17.85 MW.  It will connect and export into the Angew Gold Mine Power Station (AGPS).

Nacap has been appointed as the Principal Contractor in a joint venture with Goldwind Australia.  Construction occurred over 9-11 months with Nacap performing installation, commissioning and operation of all Project site amenities and communications throughout the project and rehabilitation of the site post construction.  Nacap’s scope included:

  • Design and construction of access roads, including upgrade of existing roads – 2.5 km
  • Design and construction of 5 x hardstands, including blade laydown areas (14,000m2)
  • Clearing and construction of batch plant, gear laydown and site offices laydown areas (20,000m2)
  • Design and construction of 5 x WTG foundations, including excavation, assembly and concrete pouring (each foundation 540m3 – 610m3)
  • Design and installation of WTG earthing and cabling system (including trenching)
  • Design and installation of cabling between WTG tower and RMU (kiosks)
  • Pre-commissioning of cabling
