RCR will also be providing operation and maintenance (O&M) services to both the Longreach and Oakey Solar Farms once they are commissioned, with an initial period of two years and an option for a three-year extension.
“The EPC and O&M contracts with Canadian Solar for the Longreach and Oakey Solar Farms will create economic benefits in the local communities and contribute to delivering renewable energy into the grid,” said RCR Managing Director and CEO Dr Paul Dalgleish.
