Project Details

Location: Woleebee, QLD

Client: Doosan GridTech Inc

The objectives of the project included:
  1. Provide a BESS capable of generating a net 100 MW output at a power factor of 0.93, in accordance with the National Electricity Rules (NER) and approved Generator Performance Standards (GPS), into the 132 kV network at the Connection Point to Powerlink’s Wandoan South Substation;
  2. Provide energy storage discharge capacity of 150 MWh at the Connection Point;
  3. Participate in the wholesale energy market;
  4. Provide frequency control ancillary services (FCAS);
  5. Provide reactive power and voltage control at the 132 kV Connection Point bus.

The Project includes battery systems, power conversion systems, step-up transformer(s), 132 kV Substation, control systems and all other electrical, civil, mechanical and auxiliary plant works necessary for a fully functioning BESS installation. The Project is connected to the Powerlink network via a 132kV underground transmission cable provided by Powerlink.
