SEQH delivers to QLD’s Largest Solar Farm


Queensland’s largest solar farm plugs into the grid a month early

South East Qld. Hauliers was assigned the job to collect 40ft import shipping containers & flat racks from the Port of Brisbane wharf and deliver to the Barcaldine Solar Farm project site which is positioned approx. 1,100km’s from the POB.

Between the months of July & November, SEQH delivered 287 x 40ft shipping containers / flat racks (the peak deliveries were Aug-Sept). These were picked up from the Port and delivered to our Toowoomba depot via A Doubles (which cart 2 x 40ft). From there, we did a change over in Roma to then cart triples (3 x 40ft) to site.

The containers were dropped to the ground with one of our side loader’s which was another cost saving initiative.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Info about the project:
The Barcaldine Solar Farm project was completed after installing 78,000 solar panels to the site. This site is estimated to generate 57,000 megawatt hours a year which is an energy consumption equivalent to approximately 9,800 households.

SEQH have depots in Hemmant, Brisbane & Toowoomba. We are able to complete projects like this due to our systems, infrastructure, people and equipment. We are honest, reliable, transparent and follow through on our word. We contribute to projects running on time and within budget – this solar farm in particular, was plugged in 1 month ahead of schedule!

This has been and is, yet another positive step forward for our communities in rural areas.
