MESCA Project Briefing: RES Australia and Standards Australia

About RES Australia's Dulacca Renewable Energy Project

RES’ Dulacca Renewable Energy project is an approved wind farm and energy storage facility located between the communities of Dulacca and Drillham in the Western Downs Region of Queensland. 

The wind farm consists of 43 wind turbines with associated hard-standing areas and access roads, operations and maintenance buildings with associated vehicle parking, an electrical substation, overhead and underground electrical cable reticulation, meteorological masts for measuring wind speed and other climatic conditions and temporary construction facilities including a construction compound, borrow pit and concrete batching plant facilities. 

The initial focus will be on the development of the wind farm with the potential for the energy storage facility to be progressed as a later second stage of the development. The project will generate both direct and supply chain jobs during the 12 to 24-month construction period. At its peak, up to 120 workers are anticipated to be active on the construction site. 

Steph Froggatt is the Development Project Manager for the project. With 15 years of experience, including 10 years specifically in the renewable energy industry, Steph has been involved in the delivery of a number of large scale projects in Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. To date Steph has been involved in the successful development of over 1GW of new renewable energy projects.

About STANDARDS Australia

Standards Australia offers stakeholders from a variety of sectors a range of pathways to develop or update new or existing standards. In 2020, the organisation is looking at three strategic focus areas in relation to the mining sector. These are around mining automation, lithium and rare earths/critical minerals. 

Standards Australia’s Emilie Mortensen will outline how supply chain companies can provide input into the development of standards in those areas, including how MESCA, as a nominating organisation, can support a company’s involvement. Emilie is the Stakeholder Engagement Manager for the mining sector at Standards Australia. 

In this role, she is responsible for engaging and managing relations with government, regulators, industry groups and other key stakeholders to support the development of relevant Australian Standards within the mining sector. She holds a Master of Science degree in Economic and Business Administration. Her professional background is focused on consultancy and international relations. She has previously worked for The Danish Foreign Ministry and The United Kingdom Government Department for International Trade.
