Adani gets pre-construction permit for 140-MW Aussie solar farm


August 23 (Solar) – Indian energy giant Adani Group has won pre-construction approval for an up to 140-MW solar park north of Whyalla, South Australia, it said on Thursday.

Through its unit Adani Renewables Australia, the company has now secured all approvals needed to start building the plant. It is currently in the process of finalising commercial negotiations with customers and expects to take a final investment decision by the end of next month, according to The Advertiser.

The AUD-200-million (USD 146m/EUR 126m) project envisages the construction of a solar park with an annual output of 300,000 MWh and an option to add battery storage capacity. During the construction phase, the project will open up to 150 jobs and will create up to five ongoing jobs afterwards.

The Whyalla solar park will be Adani’s first one in South Australia. Meanwhile, the company is nearing completion of the first 65 MW of its 170-MW Rugby Run solar farm in North Queensland. The plant is scheduled for commissioning later this year.
