K&L Gates Advises Signal Energy on 333MW Darlington Solar Farm
Located in New South Wales, the farm will be the one of the largest solar projects in Australia, producing enough renewable energy to meet the needs of more than 115,000 homes. The Darlington Point Solar Farm marks Signal’s second project in Australia, with a start date in March 2019 and expected completion in 2020.
The K&L Gates team advising Signal on the EPC contract was led by energy, infrastructure and resources partner Luke Westmore, who was assisted by lawyer Rachel McNally.
Westmore said: “We are delighted to have worked with the Signal Energy team, both in Australia and the United States, on the 333MW Darlington Point Solar Farm, one of Australia's largest solar projects to date. It is fantastic to see the continued growth of large scale solar projects in Australia and we are very proud to continue to be actively involved in these complex and landmark projects.”
