The equipment supplied must be of proven, robust and reliable design incorporating protective systems and devices with adequate factors of safety and maintainability built-in.

The specification also serves to define the environmental and regulatory constraints within which the Plant must operate and with which the Works shall comply.

Construction of the park began in July, and is expected to begin exporting electricity into the national grid in Autumn 2014.
