Maddocks advises on successful bids for renewable energy projects

• 10 June 2021 • 2 min read

Maddocks has advised construction company PCL Constructors Pacific Rim Pty Ltd on its successful bid to build and maintain two new Australian solar farm projects.

PCL secured the contracts to be the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) and operations and maintenance provider (O&M) for the Woolooga and West Wyalong solar farms. The Woolooga project, situated in Queensland, will have a capacity of 214 MWdc, while the West Wyalong project, in New South Wales, will have a capacity of 107MWdc. Both projects are sponsored by Lightsource bp Australia.

These projects in Australia form part of the growing number of solar assets under construction by Canadian-based parent company PCL Construction, which includes the Gunnedah Solar Farm in New South Wales.

The Maddocks team on the matter was led by special counsel Sefton Warner, with support from partners Andrew Pitney and Andrew Chapman, senior associate Michael Copeland and lawyer Victoria Mellor.

Sefton said it was satisfying to advise PCL Constructors Pacific Rim to achieve financial close on these projects despite challenges in the current climate.

'Maddocks is delighted to assist an experienced international EPC contractor expand their renewable operations in Australia with these two new solar farm projects, notwithstanding the recent challenges presented by the impact of COVID-19 on the supply chain,' he said.
