Dear Andrew,

Re: Quote for additional geotechnical investigation and


pile pull out tests at Mannum Solar Farm, MANNUM, SA
5238
We are pleased to provide this proposal to undertake the below works at Zone 1, Mannum Solar Farm,
MANNUM, SA 5238.

The aim of the investigations will be to identify the extent of the shallow rock which was encountered
during the FMG investigations dated December 2018. The pull out tests will verify the assumed
geotechnical strength parameters for detailing pile sizes.

The attached FMG drawing 236976-01 shows the inferred extent of shallow rock based on the current
investigations.

Some shallow rock was identified in the balance areas of the site. The additional investigations would
be sufficient to include these areas.

Prior to the investigations FMG will contact the property owners and tenants to let them know we will
be attending site for the investigations.

Proposed scope
Our proposal includes the following scope of services. If you wish to adjust this scope please contact
this office prior to accepting this proposal:
Site investigation
• Mobilisation to and from site
• One day drill rig hirage to allow for 6-10 holes to check depth of shallow rock
• Eight pull out tests
• Geotechnical logging of boreholes in accordance with AS1726-2017.
Reporting
• A brief geotechnical report to confirm the depth of shallow rock
• Results of pull out tests
Client: Canadian Solar (Australia) Pty Ltd
Site: Mannum Solar Farm, MANNUM, SA 5238

Proposed schedule
Works will commence upon receipt of the signed Client Authorisation Form. We propose the following
schedule:
• Week 1: Engage contractors
• Week 2: Undertake investigations
• Week 3: Submit report.
Program will be subject to availability of contractors. FMG would be able to make an immediate start
on return to work in the New Year. Our office opens on 14/1/19.

be required
