Badgingarra Wind Farm

Vernice Pty Ltd civil contractors operating in Western Australia since 1972.

Vernice executed the Catcon - Badgingarra Wind Farm project.

Construction north of APA’s existing Emu Downs Wind Farm began in 2017 and was completed in 2019. In addition to the positive environmental impacts, the wind farm will also positively impact the residents of surrounding local towns and communities. This will stem from the creation of local employment opportunities and local businesses stimulation due to increased construction traffic and personnel. Vernice have provided first class earthmoving services to the area and have been instrumental in the overall success of the project.

What is involved in building a wind farm?



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.
