Bodangora Wind Farm
Client: Civil and Allied Technical Construction (Catcon)
Location: Gillingham Road, Dubbo NSW
Waco Kwikform Industrial Services was engaged by Catcon to carry out repair work to wind farm components such as hubs, towers and blades which were damaged in transit to site from Europe.
The works consisted of the erection & dismantle of scaffold encapsulations, which were to provide a clean room environment to allow cleaning and paint repairs to the equipment.
We dispatched a multi-discipline team of IRATA Rope Access Personnel and NACE inspectors to carry out surveys of the installed towers, as this would identify the required paint repairs to the 33 towers in total.
Due to the environment and location of the sites, planning was critical to this project. There were several constraints that had to be managed including weather conditions and mobilisation of equipment – as the workface was located on various properties around the Dubbo district.
