Dundonnell Wind Farm

Dundonnell Wind Farm

The Dundonnell Wind Farm Project is a $560M development with the capacity to generate 336MW and estimated to power 245,000 Victorian households per year. 

Located 23km north-east of Mortlake, Victoria, the project is set to erect 80 Vestas wind turbines across 4,500ha, as well as the construction of 38km of transmission lines and a new substation.

Challenges faced : 

  • Presence of indigenous and exotic vegetation along transmission line corridor.
  • Site home to Victoria’s endangered Brolga.
  • Accessing remote locations with various terrains including notorious buckshot soil.
  • Supporting heavy traffic from 4WDs, CFA piling rigs, steel tracked trenchers, and telehandlers.
  • Keeping valuable powerline stringing equipment and cable reels away from mud.

JWA provided over 11,000 sqm of temporary roadway and hardstands, including 2.5 linear kilometers of Dura-Base Composite Mats.

Dura-Base when interlocked, form a continuous stable surface to maximise work safe ground conditions while minimising impact to the environment. 


  • Reusable over multiple locations.
  • Minimise use of extractive materials.
  • Weatherproof - no washouts from heavy rain. 
  • Minimal ground preparation and remediation works after.

Need a long stretch of access in a hurry? Call us today, JWA has the largest fleet of heavy-duty composite mats available in Australia.
