Hiring local contractors to support the construction of Ross River Solar Farm will inject substantial funding into the local Townsville economy.

Local employment matters to us

Where possible, we employ Australian workers with the right skills to work alongside our specialist project teams and operations staff. We also try to support the economic growth of the region by ensuring money we spend on services goes to local businesses in the immediate area or from within Australia.

Hiring local contractors to support the construction of Ross River Solar Farm will inject substantial funding into both the Townsville and wider-Australian economy.

Around 250 jobs will be created during construction, with a further five full time and ten part time ongoing jobs available once the solar farm is operating. Jobs will include surveyors, engineers, civil contractors, metal fabricators, electricians, fencing, security and telecommunications specialists, builders and general labourers.

Recruitment is happening now to ensure we have a pool of appropriately skilled local workers to work alongside our specialist project team and operations staff. Individuals or companies that would like to understand the opportunities for local and Australian Industries can contact us by email here.
