Alinta Energy has appointed Monford Group (Monford) as the Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Commissioning contractor in a consortium with our partner Shanghai Electric Power Design Institute Co (SEPD) to deliver a 45MW solar farm in Port Hedland.

Monford Group will commence construction of the 45MW solar farm in the third quarter of 2023 with commercial operations expected to commence by the last quarter of 2024. The project will be delivered in conjunction with a 35MW one-hour battery storage system.

Port Hedland Solar Farm will be constructed and connected to Alinta Energy’s existing Port Hedland power station which is located 14km from the BHP port facilities. The project is expected to be the first large scale renewable facility in Port Hedland and is forecasted to power 100 percent of the average daytime energy requirements for BHP’s port facilities.
