Carnegie, through its wholly owned subsidiary Energy Made Clean, has proven experience in delivering commercial and utility scale solar PV integration on a megawatt scale.
Below are a selection of projects demonstrating our experience and expertise.
EMC were engaged to design, construct and install a 1.6MWp solar facility in combination with a 2.6MWh battery energy storage system capable of diesel functionality to power the CSIRO’s Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder. Once complete, it will be the world’s most powerful radio-telescope system, powered by the most sophisticated solar/storage/diesel energy system in the world.
The Carnarvon Solar Array is a 300kW PV solar power station connected to Horizon Power’s network. The system was the first off-grid Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) supported solar power station in Western Australia.
EMC were engaged to install a 60kW system at the British Sausage Factory. The factory had recently moved to new premises in Bibra Lake, which required EMC to develop a power use estimate to use for the solar PV system sizing. The British Sausage Factory was awarded over $75,000 from the AusIndustry Clean Technology Program for the project. EMC undertook a site feasibility study, analysis, modelling and solar PV system design prior to installation and commissioning of the a 60kW rooftop solar PV system.
EMC was engaged to install a 100kW grid-connected solar PV array at the City of Melville administration building. EMC’s engineering team were able to maximise the installed capacity across the building, despite the complex shape of the roof. EMC’s team installed the solar panels in just one day to reduce impact to site operations.
EMC was engaged to install a 150kW grid-connected solar PV array at the Indian Ocean Rock Lobster Processing facility in Cervantes, WA. The system was installed across multiple roofs and required complex integration with the sites’ existing electrical infrastructure. EMC integrated the existing PV array into the new PV system by using a single unified controls system that is managed by the reverse power relay to ensure that no electricity produced by the solar PV system is exported into the grid.
EMC designed and installed two independent systems, each involving 100 kW of solar PV and a leading edge solar smoothing battery and inverter system. One system incorporated a custom designed and built car shade structure.
