MinterEllison advised CIMIC Group subsidiary Pacific Partnerships on its acquisition of the development rights for the 300MWdc Hopeland Solar Farm in Queensland, Australia. The rights were purchased from Renewable Energy Partners, a developer of renewable projects based in Brisbane.
It is expected that Hopeland Solar Farm will play a key role in Queensland’s energy transformation. Once developed, the site will have the potential to generate sufficient electricity to power 100,000 average-sized homes throughout the region.
MinterEllison advised Pacific Partnerships with a team led by Projects and Finance Partner Paul Paxton.
