Barwon Water Blackrock Treatment Plant Solar Farm

Scope of works

Design and construction of a 2MW solar PV system, integration with on site Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA). This project is an extension of stage 1, which included 1MW solar PV system and a purpose built power factor correction, specialised Static Var Generator system (SVG), remote energy monitoring and revenue grade metering.

Key Results from stage 1

  • Custom built inverter enclosure that is designed and engineered for the extremely corrisove coastal environment.
  • Successful installation of Static Var Generator system to correct power factor corrections on the high voltage side of the treatment plant.
  • String level monitoring of solar panels.
    No disruption to treatment plant operations throughout the 5 month construction program.
