Edify Energy Solar Project

First Solar has won contract to supply solar modules totaling 241 MW for solar projects being developed by Edify Energy in Australia.

According to a company release, RCR Tomlinson, the engineering, procurement and construction contractor for Edify Energy’s Daydream (180.7MWDc) and Hayman (60.2MWDC) solar projects in Queensland, Australia, awarded the 241 MW supply contract to First Solar.

With this contract, First Solar now has supply pipeline of over 500 MW in Australia.

Construction on the projects is scheduled to commence in Q3 2017, with module delivery in Q4 2017 and Q1 2018. Located across two sites north of Collinsville, the projects will utilize an optimized technology solution that includes single axis tracking technology from Array Technologies, and more than 2,026,565 First Solar advanced thin film PV modules.

Mercom previously reported that First Solar divested 190 MW of solar projects in India to IDFC, complementing its strategy of pivoting from project development to manufacturing and transitioning to Series 6 module manufacturing.
