CIMIC Group’s UGL has been appointed by Neoen to install the high voltage infrastructure which will connect a Tesla-supplied Battery Energy Storage System at Neoen’s Western Downs Green Power Hub, around 250 kilometres west of Brisbane.

Following construction, the battery, which will also be installed by UGL, will work alongside Neoen’s Western Downs solar farm at the same site and allow stored energy to be transmitted into the electricity network from the Australian summer of 2024/2025.

UGL is a specialist in the design, construction and operation of renewables assets having completed the construction of 11 solar farms and the installation of three large-scale batteries.
