RCR Tomlinson has been awarded an $85 million contract for the design and construction of First Solar’s 48.5MW Manildra Solar Farm in New South Wales.

RCR’s scope of works on the solar farm – located one kilometre from Manildra – will include the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) as well as commissioning of the solar farm, associated substations and grid connection works.

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

“There continues to be strong growth in the renewable markets, and in particular solar, where RCR excels by bringing a combination of smart engineering solutions and an understanding of traditional energy projects that often includes high voltage infrastructure and network compliance. 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.
