The Corowa Shire Council solar project was awarded to Harelec Services in March 2014, after a comprehensive tender process, managed by the Council and independent consultants Coronium. The tender process included site visits, preliminary design, communication with the Network Service Provider, and communication with both the Council and the Coronium Consultants.

Assessment of tender submissions included a detailed analysis of our proposed products, installation methodologies, personnel, experience, management systems, and resources.

The project involved the Engineering design, procurement and construction of 416kW over 14 sites.

Works were completed by Harelec’s skilled and experienced project team, with only minor assistance from sub-contractors for surveying and services to conform.

A key deliverable for the project was that practical completion be achieved by the 30th June 2014, completion of all projects sites in less than 3 months.

The Develop, Design and Approve Phase also involved the preparation and submission of single line diagrams and connection applications for all sites (to the Network Service Provider), Work Health & Safety Management Plan, Environmental Management Plan, Quality Management Plan & Risk Assessment, as well as a Project Timeline and Milestones Plan. Also required was accreditation with Statewide Mutual Contractor Insurance Management Program, and online inductions for all attending team members.

The Construction Phase of the project commenced on April 14th 2014. Practical completion was achieved prior to the required date of 30th June, with all systems connected and generating power before this date.

At the time of system design, Harelec reported the anticipated annual production of the 14 systems to be 638,886kWh. In the first 12 months after practical completion, as a direct result of effective design and technology choices, the actual production of the 14 systems has been 711,033kWh or 72,147kWh better than anticipated.
