The Australian subsidiary of VivoPower will work on the Blue Grass Solar Farm, near Chinchilla. The solar facility will generate nearly 420GWh of renewable energy annually.

This will power 80,000 homes in the region while offsetting more than 320,000t of carbon emissions a year.

JA Martin general manager Phil Lowbridge said: “JA Martin is excited to have the opportunity to once again work with GRS to construct another major solar farm, our largest to date and our first utility-scale solar project in Queensland.

“We look forward to completing another successful project and continuing to help power the growth of renewable energy across Australia.”

During construction, the project will create 400 jobs. The Blue Grass Solar Farm will be JA Martin’s third Australian project completed in partnership with engineering, procurement, and construction contractor GRS .

The contract brings the total capacity of solar farms completed and contracted by JA Martin to more than 350MW DC.

GRS managing director Carlos López said: “Our progress in Australia, with Blue Grass Solar Farm as a paragon of our remarkable milestones in 2020, tells us that we are on the right track.

“We are growing at a good pace in the country, working hard to be part of the sustainability goals set in the Australian renewable calendar, to contribute to the economic development of the community and to demonstrate that we are a great partner to carry out projects in a timely manner. 2021 is about to be a great year for GRS in Australia.”
