Partnering with communities

09 July, 2019

Yurika is doing some pretty amazing worth with solar farm projects in parts of regional and remote Queensland, but it's our partnerships with people in those communities that are just as amazing.

We're proud to be partnering with the Queensland Government to create more jobs and commercial prospects for Queensland businesses, and safer and happier communities.

The Traditional Family Group, an Indigenous-run cleaning and maintenance business in Barcaldine, Central Western Queensland, were awarded the tender from us to look after the maintenance and cleaning of the solar panels on the Barcaldine solar farm.

“This is a great story. The Traditional Family Group began as a local cleaning business in Barcaldine and when the solar farm was built they approached us to see if they could provide cleaning services for the staff kitchen," Yurika’s GM Utilities and Infrastructure Services Peter Schofield said.

"Instead, they were awarded the contract to maintain the entire grounds, including cleaning and maintaining 80,000 solar panels.”
