The DeGrussa Solar Project Knowledge Sharing Report provides valuable insights to the challenges and successes experienced in project construction, integration and interaction with mining operations.
The construction of the DeGrussa Solar Project consisted of civil, mechanical and electrical works of a 10.6MWp Solar PV System and 6MW Battery Storage System. Each element of the construction works were not particularly “pioneering”, however the system as a whole (coupled with site specific requirements) was complex. The key challenges and lessons learnt from the site construction related to:
- Site Geotech;
- Brownfield Project Construction;
- Utilising Existing Capability Sets in New Environments;
- Solar Inverter Works;
- Battery Station Works.
