2012 – ongoing



Leighton Contractors assigned AWS the role of project supervisor, working along side the project management team, for the construction of the Mumbida Wind Farm in Geraldton, Western Australia.



Work started promptly in 2012 with our technicians working along side Leighton’s team of nominated international experts, to undertake all project aspects including:

  • turbine construction and installation
  • performance of a specialised hy-torque process
  • delivery of an expert commissioning service.


Services provided

  • Project supervision
  • Tower installation
  • Nacelle installation
  • Rotor construction and installation
  • Blade repairs
  • Mechanical and electrical fit out
  • 500 hour servicing
  • Turbine inspections
  • Commissioning
  • Procedure analysis
  • Reporting



We were able to overcome the enormity of the project and its significant resourcing by supplying a team of 20 technicians, administration and team supervisors.

AWS technicians continue to work with Leighton Contractors, as well as the wind turbine manufacturer, GE at the Mumbida Wind Farm to perform servicing and repairs as well as turbine inspections and reporting.


Client feedback

“The enormity of the Mumbida project called for a significant project team involving many suppliers and stakeholders, the AWS technicians became an integral part of this team. Australian Wind Services’ professional approach, ability to efficiently accommodate our needs, and give consideration to the project constraints, resulted in a very collaborative working relationship. I would not hesitate to work with Australian Wind Services again.”
