CIMIC Group company UGL has been awarded contracts by Equis Energy to build and maintain the Tailem Bend 127MWDC Solar Farm in South Australia.
The project will generate revenue to UGL of approximately $170 million and is due to commence in early 2018, with power generation to the grid expected in 2019.
CIMIC Group Chief Executive Officer Michael Wright said: “With our growing expertise in delivering renewable energy projects, CIMIC and UGL are proud to be supporting the growth of the Australian renewable energy market and delivering the Tailem Bend Solar Farm for Equis Energy.”
UGL Managing Director Jason Spears said: “The Tailem Bend Solar Farm expands UGL’s national footprint – we now have a solar farm under construction in every Australian mainland state – reaffirming our position as the leading EPC contractor in the renewable energy sector. We are very pleased to be partnering with Equis Energy to deliver this South Australian solar farm.”
UGL will undertake the engineering, procurement and construction of the project, including the associated substation and, critically, will provide the internal expertise to ensure the project is integrated successfully into the electricity network. Once operational, UGL will provide the operation and maintenance services for a five-year period.
UGL currently has solar projects under construction at Emu Downs in Western Australia, Kidston and Collinsville in Queensland, White Rock in New South Wales and Bannerton in Victoria.
