Renewable energy is a key part of Australia’s increasingly diverse energy mix. RCR is now firmly established as a leader in this dynamic and rapidly evolving industry. Our growing capability, resources and equipment gives RCR even greater leverage to remain the foremost EPC contractor in the market.
Our renewables capabilities cover project inception, design, construction, deployment, and operation to provide full asset lifecycle support.
Our strength in engineering and project delivery, which has stood us in good stead in servicing the traditional energy markets - our Energy business will continue to service the biomass, biogas and hydro systems markets - has been readily translatable to the new and emerging renewable energy sector. This has enabled us to position RCR as a market leader in the design and construction of large scale utility photovoltaic solar, wind and battery storage projects; and to benefit from the rapid growth in renewable energy infrastructure.
Solar, wind and battery storage projects are delivered by RCR's Power Systems business. Our capabilities enable us to provide end to end support for our clients, and we can provide valuable input during the following project stages:
- Development - conceptual designs for development purposes
- Project Feasibility - indicative energy yield and pricing to assist evaluate project viability
- Grid connection – support in the connection process
- Engineering Design – in-house engineers to carry out detailed design, system integration and warrant system performance risks
- Construction – in-house supervision and labour to ensure RCR’s high safety and quality standards
- Commissioning – managed by RCR to ensure the commercial operation dates are met.
- Operations & Maintenance – RCR has extensive experience in Operating & Maintaining power generation plants.
This end-to-end approach increases the value of our design and front-end services as new projects, technologies, and concepts can be tested against the successes and challenges of those already operating; to deliver low-risk, cost effective solutions.
