ICE worked for Bouygues-Construction Australia (BYCA) to install, test and terminate over 90 km of MV Cabling on the Coleambally Solar Farm. Coleambally is a 150MW solar farm developed by Neoen Australia, an Australian subsidiary of French renewable energy company Neoen, in New South Wales (NSW), Australia.
The solar power plant has a combination of multi-crystalline and monocrystalline solar PV modules to produce solar energy from sunlight. A total of 565,488 solar PV panels, spread across 550ha of land, is to be installed at the plant. The PV panels will be mounted on a total of 6,362 trackers.
This was ICE’s first major Solar project and required the mobilisation of 20+ men and women from our team. Our proposal utilised an automated cable feeding system enabling the team to install cables at a rate far greater than conventional methods, providing the client with the efficiency required on these large scale farms.
