The Greenough River Solar Farm is a 47 MW DC project located near Geraldton WA comprising of Stage 1 and Stage 2 Construction phases
Greenough River Solar Farm stage 1 (10MW) was the first utility-scale PV project in Australia, commissioned in late 2012.
The second stage of Greenough River project (Stage 2, 37MW) was originally announced in November 2017 and was appointed to RCR Tomlinson . However, in the wake of RCR Tomlinson’s collapse at the end of 2018, the project came to a standstill.
Following an extensive process associated with RCR Tomlinson’s administration and liquidation, the developer ( Bright Energy Investments ) signed a new contract with the German EPC, juwi Renewable Australia Pty Ltd for the project completion.
Stage 1 supplies power to the WA Water Corporation, Bright Energy Investments has signed a PPA with power retailer Synergy Consulting Renewable Power Sector for the off-take of Stage 2.
Tranex Solar Pty Ltd installed over 300,000 of First Solar modules on NEXTracker, Inc single-axis trackers. A significant amount of rectification works were also undertaken due to the fact the project was still in construction phase when RCR entered administration.
This project now provides the energy needs for around 16,300 average Western Australian households.
Tranex Solar Pty Ltd remains the most trusted solar contractor in Australia, known for completing every project we have started.
