- INSTALLATION & LOGISTICS PORTFOLIO
PROGRAM MANAGEMENT AND COMMERCIAL LEAD
Program Management for a portfolio of 3 wind farm projects, to acquire crane, logistics, installation works and precommissioning of wind turbine installatIon.
Through hard work and excellent technology the Senvion team were able to secure three wind farm projects in South East Australia. Each of these projects were unique, with varied client requirements, technology, locations, terrain, schedule, and cost drivers. Two of the sites also included first-to-market products globally, and were the largest wind turbines sold in the Australian market at the time.
The team at SwitchCo were engaged to undertake a lead role in the Commercial engagement of contractors to undertake the logistics, cranage, installation and precommissioning works for these three farms. Traditionally each project would have run a stand-alone process, however due to the opportunity for synergy of requirements and equipment, a portfolio approach was released to the market. This approach enabled the new wind farm technology to be deployed using new-to-market cranage and installation methodology.
The result was the engagement of ARES Transport, and BMS / GWS for the Installation. Each party demonstrated a great attitude, technical competence and provision of project specific equipment, innovative contracting models, and a collaborative approach.
