RENEWABLE ENERGY SYSTEM OFFSETS DIESEL POWER GENERATION
RE-DEPLOYABLE - 5 YEAR ROI
The client required the design of an economically viable solar renewable energy solution for the Yamarna mining exploration camp to reduce reliance on diesel for power generation and the resultant greenhouse gas emissions and costs involved (maintenance and fuel transport to the sites remote location). Furthermore the solution required minimum impact on the environment, future expansion capacity, easily movable infrastructure and to provide a pay back period under 5 year.
Unlimited Energy Australia conducted a Feasibility Study demonstrating an economically viable hybrid smart-grid solution.
The custom designed re-deployable energy hub consists of: a fully standalone hybrid PV and Tesvolt Lithium Ion Battery System with a 187kWp surface mounted Solar PV system coupled to the camp’s grid infrastructure. The smart grid is energised by Solar PV and battery inverters utilising the existing diesel generators as backup for approximately 8 hours.
The exploration camp will utilise 100% renewable energy during the day and charge the surplus energy into the 408kWh battery storage which enables the micro-grid to operate up to 16 hours.
