Darling Downs Solar Farm is a utility-scale photovoltaic solar project which when complete will have the generating capacity of approximately 110MW (AC), making it one of the largest solar projects in Australia.
The Darling Downs Solar Farm site is located approximately 45km west of the town of Dalby in south-western Queensland and will utilise the existing Darling Downs Braemar substation which connects into the National Electricity Grid. The Darling Downs Solar Farm is expected to generate enough electricity to power around 32,000 homes. Access to the site is via Grahams Road.
The power from more than 420,000 PV modules will be combined and fed into 44 power conversion units across the 402ha site and subsequently transported via a 33kV reticulation system to the new onsite 275/33kV switchyard before feeding into the electricity grid.
Access around site will utilise existing and new access tracks.
APA Group has appointed RCR ODonnell Griffin Pty Ltd as the projects Engineering, Procurement and Construction Manager (EPCM). All major agreements will be with RCR ODonnell Griffin Pty Ltd directly.
RCR ODonnell Griffin Pty Ltd is currently preparing RFQs, undertaking initial early works and preparing for mobilisation to site.
