Wind farm creates opportunities

There are real opportunities in our region at the moment with many new major projects bringing thousands of jobs and millions of dollars of investment to the region.

One of these opportunities is the MacIntyre Wind Farm which is being developed by leading renewable energy company ACCIONA, and when complete, will be one of the largest wind farms in Australia.

Toowoomba and Surat Basin Enterprise (TSBE) recently hosted a special edition Enterprise Breakfast in Toowoomba to discuss procurement opportunities that will come out of the MacIntyre Wind Farm Precinct.

Construction of the project is set to commence in mid-2021 and will create approximately 400 jobs over the life of the project which will provide regional Queensland communities with a significant economic boost.

TSBE CEO, Ali Davenport, said it was great to see so many businesses attend the Enterprise Breakfast to hear about this opportunity.

“The fact that this event sold out so quickly shows the interest in this major project and we look forward to hearing more as the project moves through the development phase,” said Ms Davenport.
