Sunraysia Solar Farm

In June of this year, DRASOL were given the opportunity to provide our services to Decmil at the Sunraysia Solar Farm located 22km south of the township of Balranald in New South Wales. Joining the project in the later stages of construction, DRASOL completed 2,034 trackers (66.4MW) in ten weeks with a relatively small build […]

Nova Mine Solar Farm

The remote location of the Nova Nickel-Copper Mine located in Western Australia, approximately 360 kilometres south east of Kalgoorlie, was no problem for DRASOL to mobilise their crew and equipment on the two day driving journey. This 6.7MW solar PV farm on the Nova Mine will integrate with the mine’s operating diesel power station, becoming […]

Deakin University Solar Farm

The DRASOL build crew travelled to Deakin University’s Waurn Ponds Campus near Geelong in Victoria to construct a NEXTracker system designed for very “high slope” terrain at gradients of up to fifteen degrees. Set on 14.5 hectares, this 7MW capacity project has been designed to supply 54% of Waurn Ponds campus’ current power consumption and […]

Kadina Solar Farm

The Kadina Solar Farm is located near the historic mining township of Kadina in rural South Australia. Once fully completed, the power generated by the installation will feed the SA Power Substation located at Kadina East. Across a 13 hectare site, over 15,800 PV solar panels and 198 trackers were installed in under three weeks […]

Mobilong Solar Farm

In May, DRASOL took up the challenge of a new product installing the Arctech Skyline, for Western Australian company Balance Utility Solutions. The project was a 5Mw Solar Farm with 15,729 panels at Murray Bridge South Australia, 70 kms east of DRASOL’s home base, Adelaide.  Learning a new system has its challenges but with the help […]
