Badgingarra Wind Farm

Vernice Pty Ltd civil contractors operating in Western Australia since 1960.

The Badgingarra Wind Farm project was an exciting time for Vernice as it allowed our younger operators to fine tune their skills on different machines. The overall length of the project and repetitiveness of the skills they were using enabled them to develop their learning on certain machines.

The Badgingarra Wind Farm project involved creating the base of the wind power stations and constructing safe, strong access roads in between each of the farm entries. Throughout the project, 42 turbines were erected. We used several machines to complete this absolute mammoth of a job, including:

  • Loader 96H
  • Excavators (Komatsu and CAT)
  • Graders
  • Water Trucks
  • Pad Foot Roller
  • Smooth Drum Roller
  • Scrapers 615
  • ​Dozers D9 D7
  • Road Train Side Tippers x2

14 employees were utilised throughout this project, and we were closely collaborating with Catcon throughout the process. Catcon were an exceptionally efficient and useful company to work with.

Challenges faced and learnings throughout the Badgingarra Wind Farm Project.

Throughout the project, workers were living and working away, which was a struggle at times. The weather also proved to be a challenge, however, we only lost 5 out of the 356 days we were on site. Heavy rainfall and high temperatures played a role in these days.

We learned that maintaining a positive relationship with contractors helped the project run smoothly, and that effective communication between all parties (large and small) was critical to our success.
