It is the first of Mytilineos’ Queensland projects to commence operation, with a further two projects respectively in construction and about to commence construction. The project will generate enough electricity to power approximately 44,000 Australian homes.

Queensland’s Minister for Energy, Renewables and Hydrogen Mick de Brenni said, “It’s a fact that the cheapest form of electricity generation is large-scale solar, so it’s terrific to see the Moura Solar Farm generating another 82MW of cheap, clean energy. More megawatts equals further downward pressure on power prices and greater reliability, so it’s fantastic to see this project adding to the Queensland SuperGrid.”

Mytilineos general manager EPC and director of the Oceania region Ian Kirkham said, “It gives us great pleasure to formally inaugurate our first project, here in Queensland. We at Mytilineos would like to thank all stakeholders of the project, Gangaalu Nation as the traditional owners of the land, our offtaker CS Energy, Banana Shire Council, as well as our contractors and consultants across the project.”
