Solar panel electrical installation
Location: Solar plant in Mannum, South Australia
STE were awarded the contract for the electrical installation at a 5MW solar farm. The farm consisted of 17,820 PV panels, 3 inverter stations, 63 combiner boxes, 1 MV switch-room and the overhead connection to the SA Power Networks distribution network.
The focus was significantly on adherence to design, especially in regard to the cable management system. The sequencing of the tasks was strictly controlled by the development of a construction program that optimised efficiencies, both in terms of time and resource management.
STE construction management was structured in a way to provide competitive pricing to the client, yet deliver a high quality product and service. The success of this project was acknowledged by the client and has led to a continued relationship through new projects, benefiting both parties.
