Founded in 2008, Neoen is France’s leading and one of the world’s most dynamic independent producers (IPP) of renewable energy. With a current capacity of more than 3.6 GW already in operation or under construction, and a further 1 GW of projects formally awarded and secured, Neoen has doubled its size in over just 18 months. Neoen is active in France, Australia, Mexico, El Salvador, Argentina, Zambia, Jamaica, Portugal, and Finland and has assets in more than 15 countries.

Neoen Australia

Since 2012, Australia has been a key territory for Neoen. We have developed more than 2,000 MW of wind power, solar and storage projects. In 2014, the government of the ACT (state of Canberra)

granted Neoen the major part of the capacity at stake in its tender process: the wind power project of Hornsdale, which increased to a capacity of 309 MW. These were the first steps in the establishment of Neoen in South Australia and was reinforced by the addition of the Hornsdale Power Reserve (100MW) in 2017 and its expansion in 2020 (bringing the capacity to 150MW). We are also present in Western Australia, New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland:

WA: supply of off-grid electricity to a mine with a hybrid (solar/battery) plant

NSW: 5 solar farms

VIC: 1 solar farm, 1 windfarm being currently commissioned and 1 battery (that will be one of the world’s largest batteries with an installed capacity of 300MW/194MW) starting construction end-2020

QLD: 1 solar farm (460MWp Western Downs SF) being under construction and 1 wind farm expected to start construction in 2021.

In all projects’ cases, Neoen acts as the Principal but wishes to be sufficiently involved to ensure optimization is carried-out on all O&M; fronts.

In this spirit, Neoen wishes to hire a talented Assets Manager to manage the O&M; phase of its renewable Investments. The position will be based in our Canberra office where our Asset Management, Finance and Operations Control Centre teams are located.


Role purpose

Manage all Operation and Maintenance dimensions of a group of operating assets, in line with Neoen’s strategic direction and in view of maintaining the highest value of the assets thanks to the maximization of their generated revenue and maintaining their operation capability over time. Consequently, the Asset manager needs to oversee globally all the aspects relevant to the assets performance, both from their technical and financial perspective.

This will involve managing the energy and certificates sales through/to the relevant entities (AEMO, CER, Off takers, etc.).

This technical management is performed through contractual ties with third parties: maintenance contractor, technical expertise.

The role will also include following registration aspects, O&M; preparation, early-generation monitoring as well as managing the energy and certificates sales during the Construction phase.

The Assets manager will provide assistance to the Development team for setting-up O&M; solutions, discussing with potential Contractors/other parties or negotiating O&M; agreements before Financial close of future projects.

In his duties, the Asset Manager will be able to supervise a few different asset locations. Whereas NEOEN’s asset management team and control centre are based in Canberra, frequent travels to the assets locations will be required.

The position reports to NEOEN Australia Head of Asset Management.
