Wirsol wins planning nod for Aussie solar-battery hybrid park

August 5 (Renewables Now) – Renewable power group Wirsol, a part of Germany’s Wircon Group, has obtained planning permission for a 235-MWp photo voltaic park with as much as 270 MWh of battery storage in New South Wales, Australia.

Maryvale Photo voltaic and Vitality Storage challenge has been cleared by the Aussie state’s Division of Planning, Business and Surroundings, Wirsol stated earlier this week.

The proposed complicated is about to be put in 37 km southeast of Dubbo, with its building slated to start late in 2023. The location of the challenge, protecting round 350 ha (865 acres), will accommodate the photovoltaic (PV) arrays and also will be used for sheep grazing, as soon as the capability turn out to be operation.

A lithium-ion battery storage facility of between 190 MWh and 270 MWh will likely be built-in with the photo voltaic park, which is scheduled to go surfing in early 2025. The output of the complicated is predicted to be sufficient to cowl the electrical energy demand of round 82,000 common households.

Grid utility for the challenge is at present in progress, Wirsol stated. It famous that the DC-coupling of photo voltaic technology and power storage includes connecting each parts immediately into the inverters on the web site, permitting it to operate as a predictable and dispatchable technology asset.

Wirsol acquired the challenge from Photon Vitality Pty Ltd and Polpo Investments Ltd and prolonged the capability of the photo voltaic part from the unique 160 MWp.
