The Greenough River Solar Farm is a 40 MW DC project located near Geraldton WA.
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 (30MW) 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 Inc. for the project expansion.
While Greenough River 1 supplies power to the WA Water Corporation, Bright Energy Investments has singed a PPA with power retailer Synergy Consulting Renewable Power Sector.
Tranex Solar Pty Ltd have installed over 300,000 of First Solar modules on NEXTracker, Inc single-axis trackers.
This project will provide the energy needs for around 16,300 average Western Australian households.
Tranex remains the most trusted solar contractor in Australia, known for completing every project we have started.
