Decmil signs MoU for 250 MW solar PV project

Thursday, 07 December, 2017

Decmil Group has signed a deal with Maoneng Australia for its 250 MW Sunraysia Solar PV project located near Balranald in New South Wales.

The exclusive memorandum of understanding (MoU) will see Decmil and Maoneng work together on early engineering design and finalisation of an Engineer Procure Construct (EPC) contract valued at approximately $275 million.

Subject to agreement on commercial terms and the project successfully achieving financial close, the EPC contract will be awarded by the end of March 2018.

Sunraysia will be one of the first solar farms in NSW to use batteries to store energy. This will provide greater energy reliability and allow the solar farm to produce electricity during periods of peak demand rather than only during sunlight hours.

Decmil Managing Director and Group CEO Scott Criddle commented: “Decmil is looking forward to partnering with Maoneng on the Sunraysia project. Both organisations bring together complementary skills to successfully deliver this project to the Australian renewable energy market.

The Sunraysia project is Maoneng’s second significant project in the Australian market, the first being the Mugga Lane Solar Park developed and built under the ACT Government’s Reverse Solar Auction.
