Broken Hill Solar Plant.
Civiltest was excited to be part of the large team of sub-contractors that were engaged to help build the broken hill solar plant that has now been in operation since late 2015. It is a rewarding experience when our company has been able to be a part of something that is both environmentally positive as well as providing such an important part of infrastructure that is helping bring electrical power to Broken Hill in a sustainable way.

“It’s giving birth to the large-scale solar industry in Australia,” said Adam Mackett, AGL’s project manager, as he strolled among the 678,000 solar panels under a cloudless blue sky. “Hopefully, from Broken Hill’s point of view, they’ll see this as the start of something bigger.”
