Helping Shape the Queensland Renewables Sector

Solar farm

For a long time, Queensland has relied more heavily on fossil fuels than any other state in Australia. At Winch Hire Australia, we’d like to see that change. We’re a proud supporter of the developing renewables sector in South East Queensland and we’re doing our bit to help advance it.

We recently supplied a range of heavy-duty equipment to a new 15-MWAC solar farm that’s just started undergoing construction. This will be Australia’s first solar farm to operate at 1500 VDC – all the other solar farms in the country are currently only built to operate at 1000 VDC. It’s a really exciting development that we hope will set a new precedent for the renewables sector in Queensland.

Construction is underway

Construction has commenced and once complete, this new solar farm will connect into Energex’s network and feed power into the Queensland grid. It’s brilliant news for our state.

We’re getting great feedback from everyone involved in the project. Our 10 Tonne Cable Jacks and its related Cable Handling & Hauling equipment are working wonders, assisting workers to get the job done as efficiently as humanly possible.

We couldn’t be more excited about the prospect of Australia’s most powerful solar farm springing up in our very own backyard. From the entire team at Winch Hire Australia, good luck to everyone involved!
