Winton Solar Farm
In support of the state government’s Renewable Energy Targets, SMEC delivered Owner’s Engineering services on the Winton Solar Farm in Victoria, Australia, which will provide enough energy to supply around 50,000 homes and offset around 150,000 tonnes of CO2.

Our scope of work as Owner’s Engineer included technical support, planning and project management support, detailed design review, generator registration support and construction and commissioning support services. This is the third project SMEC has partnered with Fotowatio Renewable Venture (FRV) to deliver as Owner’s Engineer, having contributed to delivering 253 MW of FRV’s total 429 MW portfolio.


Winton Solar Farm is set to be one of the largest solar farms to be delivered with bi-facial PV modules in Australia and the largest semi-scheduled solar farm participating in the National Electricity Market to utilise string inverters. These technologies represent an innovative step towards maximising energy production per hectare, which in turn maximises plant availability and flexibility.
