The Bulgana Green Power Hub Battery Energy Storage System is a 20,000kW energy storage project located in Stawell, Victoria, Australia. The rated storage capacity of the project is 34,000kWh.
The electro-chemical battery energy storage project uses lithium-ion as its storage technology. The project was announced in 2017.
The Bulgana Green Power Hub Battery Energy Storage System is being developed by Neoen. The project is owned by Neoen (100%), a subsidiary of Impala.
The key applications of the project are renewables capacity firming, renewables energy time shift and on-site power.
Neoen is the owner. Neoen is the developer.
Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy is the EPC contractor for the project.
French developer Neoen will build the 220 MW Bulgana wind project in Victoria, after signing a memorandum of understanding for a power offtake agreement. The project has been renamed Bulgana Green Power Hub (BGPH) and will supply 10% of its power to a new high-tech glasshouse facility being developed by Nectar Farms. Planned for a site near Stawell, Victoria, the hub will comprise up to 63 wind turbines and 20 MW battery storage, with construction set to start in September 2017.
