Independent engineering tasks in the wind farm industry

Wallace, Grant (2008) Independent engineering tasks in the wind farm industry. Internship Report, Murdoch University.


This report describes the various tasks undertaken during the Engineering Internship position with Garrad Hassan Pty Ltd, a global wind farm consultancy. The majority of tasks involved independent electrical engineering reviews of wind farm design and construction in Australia and Asia.

The larger tasks included an electrical due diligence review of a wind farm project in Asia, multiple turbine inspections at various Australian wind farms, and an electrical due diligence review of all pipeline and under-construction wind farm projects for a global wind farm developer.

There were also many small-medium tasks included in the Internship position, which covered a large range of engineering abilities. Each of the tasks resulted in greater knowledge and experience in common and not-so-common engineering problems, which has proved to be very worthwhile. A much better understanding of contracts, tenders and regulations have also come out of this position.
