The installation of the first thin-film PV module at the Nyngan Solar Plant in NSW signals a major milestone for Australia’s largest solar plant. Geolyse undertook preparation of Construction Environmental Management Plans and site survey services for both the Solar Farm and Grid connection.
Geolyse also negotiated water supply arrangements for construction, and the design and project management of a water supply pipeline for the $290 million project.
A total of 1.35 million modules will be installed to complete the 102 MW Nyngan Solar Plant by June 2015. First Solar Regional Vice President for Asia Pacific, Jack Curtis, says, “We’re proud if the work that has gone into reaching this important Milestone, and in particular, the contribution of our local suppliers and contractors”.
The Nyngan Solar Plant site is located on an agricultural property approximately 10 kilometres west of the Nyngan township. The solar plant will occupy approximately 250 hectares of land to the north of the Barrier Highway and approximately 3 km south of the Nyngan – Cobar 132kV line.
