Wirsol Energy’s acquisition of the 110 MWp Wemen Sun Farm, Victoria


Norton Rose Fulbright has advised international solar energy company Wirsol Energy (part of the WIRCON Group) on the acquisition of the 110 MWp Wemen Sun Farm, Victoria.

To be built over an area of 770 acres, the Wemen Sun Farm is located close to Mildura in Victoria. Wirsol expects to commence construction of the project during the last quarter of 2017.

The acquisition increases Wirsol’s solar presence in Australia following its successful entrance into the Australian market with the acquisition of the 198MWp solar portfolio consisting of the Hamilton, Gannawarra and Whitsunday solar farms, which commenced construction in March 2017.

Wirsol is also working on a 400 MW large-scale solar development portfolio with Australian renewables developer, Renew Estate.

The Norton Rose Fulbright team included lawyers from our Sydney and Melbourne offices. Simon Currie (Picture) led the team advising Wirsol, supported by partner Raymond Lou and associate Tom Bramah. Other team members included partners Noni Shannon, Justin Lucas and Elisa De Wit, senior associates Tatiana Gotvig, Jacqueline Plant and Nicole Bury and lawyer Jonathan Pham.
