YADLAMALKA SOLAR FARM

SwitchCo was the client-side project manager representing Andrew Doman, the strategic lead, owner and investor for the Yadlamalka Energy Vanadium Flow Battery (VFB) Storage and Solar Farm project in South Australia.

The Yadlamalka Energy Storage Project aimed to create a large-scale solar farm and battery storage. Yadlamalka Land Pty Ltd engaged SwitchCo, through Birdwood Energy, for project management and owner’s engineering roles. This included detailed planning, procurement management, grid connection, and overseeing project execution and completion, all adhering to SAPN and ARENA standards.

TRUCK CANOPY & PUMP REPLACEMENT

Viva Energy was looking to enhance the offering available at Hexham by installing a new truck canopy and executing a pump replacement project.

Viva Energy needed to upgrade the truck canopy at Hexham and replace pumps at both truck and car canopies, decommission the LPG offering, and install a new oil-water separator. The main challenge was minimising disruption during the 6-week construction, achieved by SwitchCo’s effective planning, limiting truck canopy downtime to 2 weeks. SwitchCo’s comprehensive involvement in design, planning, and on-site supervision ensured project success and customer satisfaction, effectively addressing issues throughout.

SPIRIT OF TASMANIA TERMINAL RELOCATION

TT-Line engaged SwitchCo to complete the spirit of Tasmania terminal relocation from Melbourne to Geelong.

SwitchCo joined the project six months in to represent TT-Line, aligning interests with GeelongPort’s management and ensuring timely, budget-compliant delivery. The state-of-the-art Geelong terminal features Automated Mooring Units and a unique three-level ramp for faster boarding. Faced with a tight timeline and unexpected communication and security scope, SwitchCo successfully transitioned the shipping terminal facility from a construction site to fully operational, ensuring the terminal’s successful operation and timely first sailing.

CONTAINER DEPOSIT SCHEME KEY FACILITY DEVELOPMENT

SwitchCo were engaged to manage the set-up of the sorting and regional facility for Cleanaway as part of the victorian container deposit scheme.

The Victorian Container Deposit Scheme (CDS), launched on 1 November 2023, incentivises recycling with refunds. Cleanaway, partnering with TOMRA, engaged SwitchCo to set up the sorting and regional facility. Despite a tight 9-month timeline and site constraints, SwitchCo identified procurement needs and developed a contingency plan using existing Cleanaway sites. This approach saved costs and ensured the project’s success, with 800,000 containers collected on the first day and a new Truck Parking facility in Ballarat.
