Biggest SA solar array to be built with DLA Piper’s aid

DLA Piper has helped bring South Australia’s largest solar array closer to reality.

The firm has advised Equis Energy Australia on the development of a 127MW solar farm and a 132/3KV substation in Tailem Bend, South Australia. The project will have 400,000 solar panels spread across 200 hectares.

Equis, which is Asia’s largest independent renewable energy developer, achieved financial close on the project earlier this month. UGL Engineering will commence construction of the $200m project shortly.
