Gullen Range Wind Farm
Gullen Range Wind Farm is an operational wind farm in the Southern Tablelands of NSW, Australia. It is owned by New Gullen Range Wind Farm Pty Ltd (NGRWF). The wind farm consists of 73 turbines and produces 165.5MW of renewable power in ideal wind conditions.
On an average day it produces enough energy to power in excess of 70,000 average homes. By 2020, Gullen Range Wind Farm will have saved 2.7 million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions compared to conventional power generation.
Stretching from north to south, the wind farm measures 22km, approximately centred on the locality of Bannister, 11km South of Crookwell and 32km north west of Goulburn.

Students from Crookwell High School and five local primary schools recently enjoyed showcasing their Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) projects to the local community and industry. As part of the STEM School Industry Partnership program (SISP), students were tasked with developing products that enhance the use of renewable energy in everyday life. Isabel Nelson, BJCE’s Community Engagement Officer, was honoured to assist with judging the impressive renewable projects, which ranged from solar-powered boats and wheelchairs to energy efficient homes powered by wind and solar. Isabel was also proud to present the ‘Creativity Prize’, which is awarded to student projects with the most innovative designs. A range of local community leaders came along to the Showcase event including staff from Upper Lachlan Council and Mayor John Stafford, as well as some of the other SISP Industry partners: Pearson Engineering, Cullerin Wind Farm, Go Terra and Woodlawn Bioreactor.

Funded by the Department of Education and coordinated by Regional Development Australia Southern Inland, the SISP is a program linking industry with local schools, focussed on how STEM skills and knowledge can solve real-world problems. BJCE Australia is excited to be a part of the Program.
