Engineering and infrastructure firm RCR Tomlinson has secured a $175M contract to design and build a solar farm in Dalby, Queensland, Australia.
The new facility, named Darling Downs Solar Farm, will have an initial generating capacity of approximately 110MW.
RCR will be responsible for the engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning of the solar farm, including associated substations and grid connection works.
RCR managing director and CEO, Paul Dalgleish, said: “We are delighted to have been awarded this contract following our successful collaboration to develop the project, initially with Origin Energy and more recently with APA Group. The award is the culmination of the ECI process, which included preliminary design and engineering works.
“This significant win reflects RCR’s ability to bring smart engineering solution to our clients while providing certainty of performance and delivery time in the rapidly-evolving renewable energy industry.”
Construction work is expected to start in July 2017.
