New service providers at Capital and Woodlawn wind farms

The wind turbines at Infigen’s wind farms are manufactured by four turbine manufacturers providers: Vestas (Lake Bonney 1, 2 and 3), Vestas and NEG Micon (Alinta wind farm), Suzlon (Capital and Woodlawn wind farms) and GE (Bodangora wind farm that is under construction). While Infigen is the owner of these wind farms, the service and maintenance of the turbines at the operating wind farms have been outsourced to Vestas (Lake Bonne and Alina wind farms) and Suzlon (Capital and Woodlawn wind farms). In June 2017 Infigen executed service and maintenance agreements with Vestas for all of its operating assets (excluding Bodangora). The new agreements come into effect on 1 January 2018.

Vestas designs, manufactures, installs, and services wind turbines across the globe, and with more than 83 GW of wind turbines in 75 countries, they have installed more wind power than anyone else. Vestas is currently looking at recruiting local talent for the Capital and Woodlawn wind farms located on the shores of Lake George and 50 km south west of Goulburn, NSW. Vestas is looking for trade-qualified people in the following areas:

  • Site Supervisor
  • Service Technician-Electrical
  • Service Technician-Mechanical
  • Administrator
  • Planner

Any past experience working on a wind farm will be advantageous. For more information on the role and project call Soumya Venkataramanan on 03 8698 7346 or email your resume to recruit@vestas.com.
