Year Completed 2017
Location Hughenden, QLD
Client Beon Energy
This project entailed comprehensive test piling for Beon’s 22.5MW Solar Farm in Hughenden, QLD. The testing was crucial to the design process, providing the technical foundation for the install of some 60 000 solar panels. These panels – spread across 34 hectares – generate enough power to supply 6800 Australian homes.
The scope of works included the supply, installation and testing of varying pile lengths in variable ground conditions. This required the mobilisation of specialist equipment and personnel to remote Northern Queensland in order to provide the client with in-ground geotechnical conditions and pile performance through extensive pile pullout and lateral testing.
