PV hybrid project for Great Barrier Reef



Juwi Renewable Energy recently signed an agreement with the University of Queensland to deliver a high penetration solar, battery hybrid power solution under an EPC contract, at the Heron Island Research Station located in Australia’s Great Barrier Reef.

The project consists of a 500 kW roof top installation combined with a 0,6 MWh vanadium flow battery integrated with diesel generators using a microgrid control system. This project is expected to deliver over 80% of the research facility’s annual electricity needs and be operational in mid-2019. The project builds on the success of the world’s largest solar, battery hybrid project delivered by juwi at the Degrussa mine in Western Australia. This has now been operating for three years, during which time it has reduced the diesel consumption at the mine by over 5 million litres per annum.
