RCR Infrastructure Projects

Darling Downs Solar Farm


Origin Energy


Dalby, QLD






Early in 2016, RCR was awarded an ECI contract by Origin Energy to provide design and engineering expertise for Origin’s proposed large-scale solar farm located in Dalby, Queensland. Upon successful completion of the ECI work, achievement of state and federal regulatory approvals and other considerations, RCR will enter into a Design and Construct (“D&C”) Contract for the development of the proposed Solar Farm.

The installation of the solar infrastructure, which is permitted to deliver up to 200 MW of generation capacity, will create up to a 200 Ha solar footprint. The project leverages our intellectual capital in the design and construction of large-scale energy generation assets and reflects RCR’s standing as one of the country’s leading energy solutions specialists.


Broken Hill Solar Farm


First Solar/AGL Ltd


Broken Hill, NSW

 solar farm





The Broken Hill Solar Plant is a 53 MW solar PV power station located five kilometres southwest of Broken Hill. The solar plant occupies approximately 140 hectares and has over 650,000 solar PV modules installed at the site.

The solar plant was connected to the electrical grid via a 22 kV transmission line that connected into an existing substation, located 2.7 km to the east of the site.

RCR was responsible for the installation, testing and commissioning of the DC and AC plant, including the thin film PV modules. RCR undertook the detail civil and trenching works, AC/DC/Communication cable installation, terminations and earth grid works, in addition to installing 40 invertor stations, two 22kV Switchrooms, SCC (SCADA) and OEM buildings. RCR successfully completed 130,000 man hours within 6 months, one month ahead of schedule with 0 Lost Time Injuries.
