Plans for an upcoming solar project in Australia that can supply up to 15 % of Singapore’s electricity needs are gathering pace, with a global expert team assembled to deliver the multi-gigawatt scale project.
The Integrated Project Delivery Team comprises five companies, including SMEC, focusing on different areas, such as risk management and high-voltage direct current transmission. The other companies are Bechtel, Hatch, Marsh and PwC Australia.
They will help to drive the future of renewable energy in Australia and the Indo-Pacific, the release said.
