Coopers Gap Wind Farm
The AGL – Coopers Gap Wind Farm, located 250 km north-west of Brisbane, at completion in 2020 became Australia’s largest capacity wind farm. The project also happens to be one of the greatest technically advanced renewable energy logistics operations in Australia’s history. The Coopers Gap Wind Farm has the capacity of 453MW, producing approximately 1,510,000MWh of renewable energy – powering up to 264,000 average Australian homes.
The Qube Renewables Team, through LCR were actively involved in the coordination and logistics handling of all aspects of the project from cargo arrival, port operations, lifting services at port and site, plus deliver 1,230 over-dimensional loads of components via LCR’s heavy haulage services.
To make the transport of each turbine component possible, each component travelled more than 300 kilometres from the Port of Brisbane to the Coopers Gap site. Throughout the project teams spent more than 200,000-man hours, meticulously coordinating and moving each of these components, primarily throughout the night along some of Queensland’s major roads.
The project is estimated to have an investment in excess of $850 million, and boasts 123 turbines, making the Coopers Gap Wind Farm one of the largest wind farms in Australia.

Limondale Solar Farm
Located 14 kilometres south of Balranald, New South Wales lies the Innogy Renewables Australia, Limondale Solar Farm. The farm itself has a planned installed capacity of 349 megawatts, made up of approximately 872,000 panels, covering an area of 900 hectares (equivalent in size to around 415 football fields) and once complete will generate enough electricity to power up to 105,000 homes each year.

The project itself provides a number of benefits to the community including the employment of a peak workforce of 300 – 400 individual contractors, it assists in meeting state and federal government targets for renewable energy as well as playing a crucial role in increasing energy security by contributing to a more diverse energy mix.
Full commercial operation of the Limondale Solar Farm is expected by mid 2020.
