Top 3 Hybrid Energy news (Solar- and Wind-Diesel-Hybrid + Minigrids) - August 2015

In many countries in the northern hemisphere we are having a summer break, but numerous hybrid projects have progressed recently. Amongst others, in mining Sirius Resources have announced a 6.7 MWp PV plant for their Nova nickel mine.

Other companies that you will find in our Top hybrid news are: Zenith Pacific, Solea AG, Toshiba, RF Industries, Juwi, Sandfire Resources, Neoen, Building Energy, SES SMART Energy Solutions, OTOC Australia, Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA), Hitzinger, Southern Prospect, Doric Engineering, Bartech, CEFC, Consorcio Energias Limpias Alternativas Venezolanas (CELAV) and Yingli Green Energy.

Top 1: 6.7 MWp solar/diesel hybrid plant for Nova Nickel mine (AUS) without subsidies announced

Sirius Resources NL nominates Zenith Pacific as preferred tenderer for a 20 Megawatt diesel power station combined with a 6.7 Megawatt photovoltaic solar power station. The solar power station will be installed and commissioned by Australian based Zenith Pacific and German Solea AG. Zenith Pacific will own, operate and maintain both the solar power station and the diesel power station. Sirius considers the power plant at its Nova nickel mine to set new standards for future diesel/gas/solar remote power stations because this is the first time a project of this nature has been commercially viable and not reliant on subsidies or grants.

Top 2: First suppliers selected for 60% renewable Flinders Island hybrid hub with storage

The AUS$12.88 million Flinders Island project is supported by the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) with AUS$5.5 million funding. It follows the King Island Renewable Energy Integration Project, which has seen King Island’s energy needs supplied solely from renewables under certain conditions. The major agreements include Toshiba for battery storage and RF Industries for the PV design and construction. Hitzinger will supply the Diesel Uninterruptible Power Supply (DUPS) unit, Southern Prospect and Doric Engineering will provide containers. Bartech will manufacture switchgear in specialized containers.

 

Top 3: Construction starts on the 10.6 MWp DeGrussa solar/diesel hybrid project

The announcement was just one day too late for our last newsletter and the normal Top 5 hybrid news. The PV plant will be owned by the French renewable IPP Neoen, supported by ARENA, financed by CEFC, developed, built and operated by juwi. The 10.6MWp solar PV plant will be built at the off-grid DeGrussa Copper-Gold Mine, owned by Australian mining company Sandfire Resource. Neoen has provided the construction equity and will be the long-term owner-manager. Juwi will undertake onsite assembly in conjunction with OTOC Australia. The installation, based on single-axis trackers and a 6MW battery, will be the largest integrated off-grid solar power system in use by the mining industry.
