Origin awards RCR Tomlinson large scale solar contract

RCR Tomlinson (ASX:RCR) has been awarded the contract for Origin Energy’s large scale solar project planned in north-eastern Australia.

The engineering and infrastructure company will provide design and engineering expertise for Origin’s proposed solar farm located in Dolby, Queensland.

Upon installation of the solar infrastructure, the farm will deliver up to 200 megawatts (MW) of renewable energy and will also benefit from being located adjacent to Origin’s existing 630 MW Darling Downs Power Station.

“Securing this ECI with Origin, against our major competitors, is a great success for RCR and confirms RCR as one of the country’s leading energy solution specialists,” said Paul Dalgleish, RCR’s MD and CEO.

“We are delighted to have been selected by Origin to participate in the design and development of this major solar farm.”

He added: “The project leverages our intellectual capital in the design and construction of large scale energy generation assets and our experience on a recently completed solar farm.”
