Emerald Solar Park

In May 2018 Tapex supplied the cable cover requirements of the 68MW Emerald Solar Park in Central Queensland.

The 68MW Emerald Solar Park is owned by global utility Renewable Energy Systems (RES). The 250,000 solar panels covered a 160-hectare site in a $100 million development. Construction of the Emerald Solar Park began in October 2017, with electricity generation commencing in 2018.

RCR Infrastructure required Tapex to supply a bespoke size cable cover for this project (350mm x 150 metres). Two 350mm wide hardcovers were laid side by side to cover a trench width of 700mm. The large 150m contractor-size rolls ensured less wastage and faster laying. In total over 28,000m was delivered on-site, on time.


350mm wide rolls. Custom Cable Cover roll widths can be made up to 600mm
