The 15MW Sunshine Coast Solar Farm in Valdora powered by Trina Solar panels is on track to be fully operational by mid-2017.
Downer was awarded the contract to Design, Construct, Operate and Maintain (DCOM) the Sunshine Coast Solar Farm and appointed Trina Solar to supply 57,000 pieces of Duomax PEG14 315W photovoltaic (PV) solar panel modules.
Ms. Helena Li, President, Asia Pacific and Middle East, Trina Solar said: "It is our great pleasure to once again work with Downer to deliver a milestone for the Australian utility industry - the Sunshine Coast Solar Farm is one of the first projects to be delivered at the 1500V rating system. We are proud to have played a part in helping the region transition into a clean energy economy."
"We're pleased to continue growing our relationships with partners like Trina Solar to deliver large scale renewable projects and continue our leadership in the renewable energy sector," said Trevor Cohen, Executive Director, Downer Utilities.
