The Numurkah Solar Farm, developed by French renewable energy producer Neoen and constructed by Australian EPC Downer, has begun sending power to the grid. LONGi supplied all the 128MW high-efficiency monocrystalline panels.
Located in northern Victoria, the plant features 373,839 solar panels spanning 515 hectares. It will generate 255 GWh/year of clean energy that powers key infrastructure such as the Melbourne tram and Laverton Steelworks. The project has created almost 300 jobs in the Numurkah region during the construction phase and will offer more employment opportunities during its service life in Victoria.
