Tragedy has struck at a solar farm under construction near Port Augusta where a worker was pinned under machinery.

The worker passed away after being pinned at a site in Stirling North. Safe SA is investigating the incident.

Construction is underway on the first stage of the sprawling farm, with the second stage expected to begin construction early next year.

The site which contains hundreds of solar panels will be one of the largest in Australia and will generate enough power to cater for more than 20,000 households.

It is believed numerous contractors are working on the massive construction site.
