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 Australia’s first fully integrated hybrid diesel/solar PV facility.

The four week project saw the successful installation of 211 single-axis trackers with over 15,000 PV modules installed ahead of schedule.
