“We are very pleased to have been selected as the key partner to deliver this significant large-scale solar energy project in Manildra.

The use of our engineering intelligence ensures clients get strong performance guarantees and smart solutions at lower costs,” said RCR Managing Director and CEO Dr Paul Dalgleish.

Construction on the Manildra Solar Farm is expected to commence in June 2017 and be completed by Q2 of 2018.
