The project, near Perth, West Australia, will be designed in a partnership in a joint venture established for the purpose of this project.
Phoenix Solar will also be in charge of the offshore procurement of all vital components. The construction of the three phases of the plant, built on one site, will be managed and carried out by the other joint venture partner WBHO, a AUD 2 billion infrastructure contractor.
The project will incorporate leading edge solar technology resulting in a high-performance plant including 1,500 Volt-technology, single axis tracking, and mono-crystalline PERC modules. It was developed and will be owned by WestGen, a clean energy development company already operating a significant portfolio of advanced power projects in Western Australia.
The solar energy produced by the plant will be used under a power purchase agreement by Kleenheat, a West Australian energy provider, diversifying into green electricity.
