LAUNCH OF CONSTRUCTION
Neoen has provided notice to proceed to a joint venture of Bouygues Construction Australia and Bouygues Energies & Services Australia, under an EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) turnkey contract, signalling the start of construction of the 440 MWp Culcairn Solar Farm.
The project will deliver significant boost to the regional economy, with over 400 construction jobs expected as well as 7 permanent positions once it starts operating.
Neoen has also recently been awarded a Long-Term Energy Services Agreement (LTESA) through the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) Services’ tenders under the NSW Government’s Electricity Infrastructure Roadmap, designed to enable the state to achieve its target of reaching net zero by 2050.
