Description

WBHO delivered all supporting infrastructure for the Nyngan solar power plant located in central NSW.

The facility consists of 1.3 million photovoltaic solar modules producing 230,000MWh of electricity per year. WBHO delivered four work packages for First Solar: civil, structures, building and electrical. The work included site preparation and clearing, constructing access roads and parking areas, erecting supporting buildings, electrical supply and installation, and fencing.

In just six months the team delivered 36 kilometres of trenching, 400 kilometres of cabling to connect solar modules and inverters, and 50 kilometres of access and internal roads, as well as installing 150,000 steel posts to support the PV modules. All work was completed as scheduled.
