  • Hughenden

    BayWa r.e.'s first Australian solar energy installation in Queensland.

    This was the first solar energy project for BayWa r.e. in Australia. We oversaw construction and sale of the 20 MW project in rural Queensland. In addition, ongoing operations and maintenance is provided. 

    Facing a tight timeframe and a very remote site location in the Queensland outback, we had to move quickly to establish a team. Our project management teams in Melbourne and Bangkok combined their expertise with local Australian contractors.

    The solar installation in Hughenden was purchased, developed, sold and constructed within only a few months. Demonstrating our extensive expertise in project development and supply chain management, as well as our collaborative business culture and financial acumen.

  • Karadoc

    Australia takes the lead in solar energy generation in Mildura, Victoria.

    We are undertaking one of Australia’s largest ever solar farms in Northern Victoria. Once operational the Karadoc solar farm will produce 112 MW of power, that’s enough electricity to power over 110,000 homes.

    The huge solar farm will be located 35km south of the township of Mildura. Currently under development, we have now secured planning permission for the project and started the construction of the power lines that will be used to transport the energy into the electricity network. Once complete, we will continue to undertake the operations and maintenance of the solar farm.

    Daniel Gäfke, Managing Director of BayWa r.e. Solar Pte Ltd. “The Karadoc solar farm is the largest installation ever undertaken by BayWa r.e and is a great showcase of our ability to procure, design and build projects of this size anywhere in the world. Australia is a very important market for us and this investment is testament to the commitment we have to help increase Australia’s renewable energy capacity.”

  • Yatpool

    A giant in solar energy in Mildura, Victoria.

    The Yatpool solar farm located in Northern Victoria is only 20km away from its sister project the Karadoc solar farm. Once complete, the 106 MW farm will generate enough electricity to power over 100,000 homes.

    Due to be operational by the end of 2018, the project has received planning approval and secured the necessary grid contracts. The next stage of the project is for the local team to undertake the site’s design and the procurement for the solar farm’s construction.

    Daniel Gäfke, Managing Director of BayWa r.e. Solar Pte Ltd. “Once operational, the solar farm will be one of the world’s largest and showcase Australia as one of the world’s leading generators in renewable energy. Australia is a fantastic resource for renewable energy and we hope to help make it a leading country for solar energy generation.”

  • Diapur

    Diapur is a three-turbine wind farm approximately 19km west of Nhill township in far western Victoria, very close to the South Australian border.

    The wind farm will have a capacity of up to 10.2 MW and will connect to the existing 22 kV electricity network in the area. The three 3.4 MW turbines will produce the equivalent energy usage of around 6000 households.

    The planning application was lodged with the Minister for Planning in September 2017, and was assessed against the Policy and Planning Guidelines for the Development of Wind Energy Facilities in Victoria which sets standards and limits including the following:

    • Sound compliance,
    • Landscape impact,
    • Shadow and flicker,
    • Aviation,
    • Impact to Flora and Fauna,
    • Impact to Cultural Heritage, and
    • Electromagnetic Interference.

    Following the assessment by the Department, the Minister issued Notice of Decision to Grant a Permit No PA1700251 on 08 March 2018.

  • Yawong

    Yawong is a two-turbine wind farm approximately 17 km north-west of St Arnaud in western Victoria.

    The wind farm will have a capacity of 7.2 MW and will connect to the existing 22 kV electricity network in the area. The two 3.6 MW turbines will produce the equivalent energy usage of around 4,500 households.

    The planning application was lodged with the Minister for Planning in March 2017, and was assessed against the Policy and Planning Guidelines for the Development of Wind Energy Facilities in Victoria. Following the assessment by the Department, the Minister issued Planning Permit No PA1700200 on 31 August 2017 to Yawong Wind Farm Pty Ltd. The construction of the wind farm begun in May 2018 and will comprise three phases taking 6-9 months in total.

    The phases are:

    1. Construction of the access tracks, construction pads, foundations and underground cabling.
    2. Delivery and installation of the turbines using specialised cranes with highly skilled operators.
    3. Commissioning, testing and connecting the wind farm to the local electricity grid so that the export of energy can begin.
