Maddocks has advised major integrated energy company Origin Energy on its acquisition of the Yarrabee Solar Farm development project and the Carisbrook Solar Farm.

The Yarrabee Solar Farm development project, located in the Riverina area of NSW, is expected to comprise 450MW of capacity in its first phase, with the potential to increase up to 900MW. The development project will play an important role in helping Origin Energy provide cleaner energy to their customers, whilst also reducing emissions from their generation portfolio.

The 74MW Carisbrook Solar Farm, in central Victoria, is targeted to reach commercial operations in 2023, subject to a final investment decision and other required approvals.

The Maddocks team that worked on the matters was led by Corporate partner Duncan Hall and senior associate Bernardo Wood and Energy Projects, Transactions and Regulation partner Peter Limbers and associate Alena Stirton, with support from partner Alicia Albury, senior associates Jenny Lo, Suzanne Rizk, Libby Sivell and associate Jonina Neale.

Duncan Hall said it was extremely pleasing to work with Origin Energy on these significant transactions.

‘We are really pleased to have worked with Origin Energy on these transactions as they look to accelerate the growth of renewable energy in their portfolio’.
