Ararat Wind Farm: first renewable energy project registered for an IS rating

The Ararat Wind Farm project is the first renewable energy project in Australia to register for an IS rating.

“At Downer, the importance we place on sustainability allows us to identify and unlock substantial long term economic, social and environmental value which has been shared with our customers and our local communities,” said Trevor Cohen, Executive Director, Downer Utilities.

John Tregear, the wind farm’s Project Manager said, “Together with our client, Ararat Wind Farm, we’re excited to again lead the industry in being the first renewable energy project in Australia to register for an IS rating. It will enable us to measure our sustainability performance in constructing a wind farm and serve as a benchmark for the industry. IS will allow us to push ahead of industry best practice when it comes to building sustainable infrastructure.”

Over the coming months, the project team will be working on their IS As Built rating submission, measuring and capturing sustainability initiatives and practices on the project.

Downer was the first company in Australia to be awarded with an Excellent IS rating. We are also the only company to be awarded with IS Design, IS As Built and IS Operational ratings. Our Whitsundays Sewerage Treatment Plant Upgrade project is also the first project to achieve both IS Design and IS As Built ratings*.
