Synergy has awarded the contract for the delivery of Kwinana Battery Stage Two civil and electrical balance of plant works, including installing and commissioning almost 300 battery container units and 72 inverters.

The contract has been awarded to GenusPlus Group, a power and communications construction and engineering company. 

Kwinana Battery Stage Two is set to be the biggest grid-connected battery in Western Australia, delivering 200MW of power with 800MWh of energy storage.

The project is expected to create 160 jobs during the peak of construction and the estimated completion date is late 2024.

Synergy CEO, David Fyfe, said GenusPlus Group was a key subcontractor in successfully delivering the first utility-scale battery in Western Australia.

“Kwinana Battery Stage One was completed earlier this year,” Mr Fyfe said.

“Already it is providing stability to the South West Interconnected System (SWIS) by absorbing excess solar power during the day and releasing it in the evening.

“The Synergy team welcomes the opportunity to again partner with GenusPlus Group to deliver another important project in Western Australia’s decarbonisation journey.”

The State Government has allocated $625 million for Kwinana Battery Stage Two as part of its Energy Transformation Strategy.
