VivoPower International PLC (Nasdaq: VVPR) (“VivoPower”), a global solar power company, is pleased to announce that its wholly-owned subsidiary in Australia, J.A. Martin Electrical Pty Limited (“J.A. Martin”) has recently completed all electrical works for the 89 MWdc Goonumbla Solar Farm near the town of Parkes in New South Wales, the city made famous for broadcasting images of the Apollo 11 moon landing. The project was completed in partnership with lead contractor Grupo Gransolar (“GRS”).
Energised earlier this month, the Goonumbla project will generate approximately 195,000 MWh of clean energy per year, enough to power 45,000 homes and avoid 140,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions. Electricity produced by the project will be sold under a power purchase agreement with Australian Federal government-owned generator and retailer Snowy Hydro Limited.
Phil Lowbridge, General Manager of J.A. Martin, said, “Goonumbla represents the largest solar project that we have completed works on to date. We’re very excited to achieve this milestone and look forward to continuing to grow both our relationship with GRS and our position as a leading solar solutions provider in Australia.”
