The project will comprise approximately 17,000 solar panels utilising tracking technology.
Australia’s MPower Group has secured a contract to construct a 6.8MWDC solar farm at Mannum in South Australia, an announcement revealed.
Said to be its second significant solar farm project in South Australia YTD, the 6.8MWDC Mannum Solar Farm Project comprises approximately 17,000 solar panels and utilises single-axis tracking technology.
“The tracking technology facilitates the movement of the solar panels to track the sun during the day, thereby maximising the power output of the solar farm,” the firm noted.
The grid-connected Mannum Solar Farm Project is owned by a wholly owned subsidiary of Canadian Solar. The contract has a value to MPower of over $3 million and will be completed within 2019.
According to MPower’s CEO Nathan Wise, the Mannum Solar Farm will bring another new, dependable and renewable energy source to South Australia, supporting the transition to renewable energy and further boosting the state’s renewable credentials.
“The rise of decentralised power generation and the move away from centralised power stations is a continuing phenomenon and we are encouraged by the level of demand,” he commented.
