Mammoet to Transport Turbines 270 km to Remote WA Wind Farm
June 6, 2018 - Mammoet has been contracted by deugro to transport 37 wind turbines to Badgingarra Wind Farm, located 185 kilometers north of Perth, Western Australia. The 3.6-megawatt wind turbines will travel 270 kilometers from the Australian Marine Complex to the remote location. Following its completion in early 2019, the Badgingarra Wind Farm will generate 130 megawatts, which is enough to power more than 115,000 Western Australian homes.
