Neoen’s Mount Hopeful Wind Farm opens up procurement opportunties to the supply chain.

Neoen’s Mount Hopefull Wind Farm located 50km south of Rockhampton and 70km west of Gladstone will require a construction workforce of approximately 300 from the local supply chain.

“Neoen focuses first on hiring local people for our projects. Locals know the land and have the skills and enthusiasm to support us during construction,” the company states. “We love to work with local suppliers who provide their products and services to help us over the life of the project.”

Neoen expects the project to begin construction in late 2023 or early 2024 with the hiring of contractors before construction. The company will be presenting their procurement opportunties to the supply chain on April 7 at the online Connecting Renewable Energy Conference Queensland.

“The Mount Hopeful Wind Farm will bring a range of benefits to surrounding communities,” the company states.

“We’re keen to hear from the local community how we can share some of the benefits of this project with you.”

The Mount Hopeful Wind Farm is a large-scale renewable energy project proposed in Central Queensland, within the Rockhampton and Banana Shire areas.

The site is located close to the energy demand centres of Rockhampton and Gladstone, giving the project a robust commercial outlook and access to a strong base of local subcontractors and established transportation corridors.

During construction Neoen expects their main contractor and sub-contractor will seek people with skills in these areas.
