VivoPower unit to build 3.6-MW solar park for Aussie cotton producer


August 7 (Solar) – The Aussie unit of VivoPower International Plc (NASDAQ:VVPR) has won a contract to build the 3.6-MW Cubbie solar power plant near Dirranbandi in Queensland.

VivoPower announced this on Monday, saying that the engineering design, procurement and construction job has been taken by wholly-owned subsidiary Aevitas Group Ltd’s JA Martin division.

The project is owned by Australia’s largest cotton producer, Cubbie Ag. The solar park that will be built by JA Martin Electrical Pty Limited will be able to meet 40% of the energy needs at the Cubbie Station, the largest irrigation property in the southern hemisphere, during the peak cotton ginning season from April to September.

Cubbie Ag’s plan is to expand the facility to 7.2 MW in the future. The project includes a battery storage element.

VivoPower said that construction work will start in October, with plans to complete the facility by December 2018.
