German firm Belectric will imminently start construction on 460MW of solar in Australia.
At the beginning of this year, German-based energy company innogy SE announced that Belectric, via its subsidiary Belectric Australia would take control of the EPC and O&M for the two projects in New South Wales, which have a combined capacity of more than 460MW (Limondale 347MW at Balranald and 115MW at Hillston).
“For us as EPC provider with close to 2GW of executed projects all over the world, Australia is a promising market to further strengthen our global leading position”, said Martin Zembsch, managing director of Belectric Solar & Battery. “Large-scale solar has gone from an emerging technology at the beginning of the decade to a genuinely game-changing form of electricity generation in Australia with high solar irradiation and rapidly falling costs enabling a large number of new projects. This includes two large-scale projects in New South Wales for which Belectric secured the EPC contract. With our experienced new and existing staff we are well prepared to start construction works for the first of these solar plants in the upcoming weeks.”
