We are fully aware that, in order to create value and build trust, we need to combine our corporate responsibility with stakeholders with the utmost level of sustainability and long-term thinking.

About the project
The Crookwell 3 project covers an area of approximately 1,100 ha owned by two landholders and used primarily for agricultural (grazing) activities which will be able to continue with operation of the wind farm.
The project is considered the 2nd stage of the Crookwell 2 wind farm, also owned and operated by GPG Australia.
Global Power Generation Australia (GPGA) is the Australian subsidiary of Global Power Generation (GPG), the international generation arm of Naturgy Group (Naturgy). GPG was created in 2014, in order to bring together the international power generation assets and business for the company outside of Europe, with the participation of the Kuwait Investment Authority (KIA).
In the spirit of reconciliation, GPG acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to their Elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
The Crookwell wind farm is located on the lands of the Gundangurra people and we wish to acknowledge them as Traditional Owners.
