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.

BJCE Australia is proud to be a founding signatory of the Clean Energy Council’s Best Practice Charter for Renewable Energy Developments. The charter is a voluntary set of commitments to reflect our promise to develop and operate projects in a socially responsible way. The charter can be downloaded here.

News Update 06/06/2019:Hands on learning at Wollondilly and Bradfordville Public Schools

We were excited to kick off our 2019 school incursion program by dropping in on Wollondilly and Bradfordville Public Schools this week. Under the instruction of our Community Engagement Officer, Isabel Nelson, students made their very own anemometer, a wind speed measuring device. The students’ many technical questions on how our wind farms work were answered by Simon Zhao, the expert Site Manager of our Gullen Range Wind Farm. Everybody, including our staff, had a great time.
