Winneke Water Treatment Plant Solar Project, Australia

Australia’s first terrain-following solar tracker project protects sensitive land and provides a behind-the-meter solution to power essential drinking water treatment.

Nextracker’s Horizon-XTR™ technology was chosen for the project to protect the land from erosion, minimise grading and groundworks, and reduce reseeding time. By using Horizon-XTR the project could take on the uneven terrain, conform to topography and enabled the Winneke Water Treatment plant to accomplish its renewable energy objectives.

The Winneke Water Treatment Plant project showcases the engineering and partnership needed to create a behind-the-meter project among a unique landscape with significant environmental values.
