Renewable energy developer BayWa r.e. has awarded Beon Energy Solutions the EPC contract for the 112MW Karadoc solar farm in Victoria, Australia.
The project, located 20 kilometres south of Mildura, will use 340,000 modules and will also include trackers. construction is expected to create up to 300 jobs for the region and completion is due late 2018.
Beon general manager Glen Thomson said: “BayWa r.e.’s commitment to the Karadoc solar farm demonstrates that utility-scale solar farms have a big future in the Mildura region, which will lead to significant short-term and ongoing regional development opportunities while helping to achieve Australia’s renewable energy target.”
Beon and BayWa r.e. have worked together on previous projects including the 20MW Hughenden solar farm in north-west Queensland.
