The motivation for this project is the complexity involved in the large scale of wind farm development and the project management challenges it presents, although there are successful projects completed, the lessons learned can be gathered at this stage and applied to following projects. Building from the current 6374 MW to the government’s initiative of 80,000 MW in fifteen years will be a challenge to many organizations and many project managers. From our research we find that wind farm projects are very challenging projects headed by project managers with intense project management skills. The Wind Farm projects are strongly influenced by social, commercial and environmental factors coupled with changing government incentives that support wind farm development as a renewable energy source.
