The Sandfire DeGrussa Hybrid Project in Western Australia has achieved its annual generation target one month ahead of schedule. The project consists of a 10,6 MW tracking PV project together with a 6 MW battery coupled with a hybrid control system which the company developed, constructed and has been operating and maintaining since 2016. Through effective hybrid system optimisation, achieved in partnership with project owner Neoen, mine owner Sandfire Resources NL and the thermal power station provider Pacific Energy (KPS), Juwi’s team has been able to materially increase solar power production and reduce diesel consumption. This milestone confirms that the company’s hybrid systems reliably power off-grid sites, while effectively reducing diesel consumption and CO2 emissions.
