Sandfire DeGrussa hybrid project delivers outstanding performance

juwi Australia has announced that the Sandfire DeGrussa Hybrid Project in Western Australia recently achieved its annual generation targets one month ahead of schedule. The project consists of a 10.6MW tracking PV Project together with a 6MW battery coupled with a hybrid control system which juwi developed, constructed and has been operating and maintaining since 2016.

Through effective hybrid system optimization, achieved in partnership with project owner Neoen (ISIN Code: FR0011675362, ticker: NEOEN), mine owner Sandfire Resources NL and the thermal power station provider Pacific Energy (KPS) Pty Ltd, juwi’s team has been able to materially increase solar power production and reduce diesel consumption.

“This is a great milestone for juwi Australia again confirming that their hybrid systems reliably power off-grid sites, while effectively  reducing diesel consumption and CO2 emissions,” said juwi’s Global Head of Hybrid, Dave Manning.
