Hundreds of jobs in limbo after long approval delay

About 200 workers are in limbo after work on Australia's largest wind farm arm stalled, with the company responsible for installing the 126 turbines suffering "frustrating" delays securing a Queensland d building licence.

The $850 million, 453 megawatt Coopers Gap wind farm project is between Dalby and Kingaroy. General Electric and Boom Logistics have been commissioned to complete the project, with both in negotiations with the Queensland Government since last yyear to secure appprovals to start work.

Approval was granted by th the Queensland Building and Construction Commission on Monday, but the licence delay put on hold the installation of turbines from February. Carl Allcorn from GE said the delay has pushed the expected completion date of the project from July to late August.
