Problems at Sandfire's solar farm

Sandfire Resources has encountered problems at its $40 million solar farm at the Degrussa copper mine, about six months after an ASX announcement suggested the power plant had been successfully commissioned.

Business News understands that there have been commissioning issues integrating the solar farm’s electric system with the existing power operation, a diesel plant owned and operated by Pacific Energy through subsidiary KPS.

The solar farm itself is believed to work, but problems with related electronics and circuits led to sub-optimal performance.
