Carnegie Clean Energy has completed commissioning of the Garden Island Microgrid (GIMG) Project.
The Garden Island Microgrid is a 2MW Solar PV and 2MW/0.5MWh Battery Energy Storage System built by Carnegie on HMAS Stirling, Australia’s largest naval base, located on Garden Island, Western Australia.
During the commissioning phase, the system sent renewable power to the base network and has already shown its ability to deliver a reduction in Garden Island’s peak load.
With commissioning complete, the system will shortly commence commercial operations upon receipt of the ‘Approval to Operate’. Under Carnegie’s Power Supply Agreement, Department of Defence will purchase the power produced by the Project.
