The Harlin Solar PV Project – Battery Energy Storage System is a 500,000kW energy storage project located in Harlin,Kilcoy, Queensland, Australia.

The electro-chemical battery energy storage project uses lithium-ion as its storage technology. The project was announced in 2018 and will be commissioned in 2023.

Description

The Harlin Solar PV Project – Battery Energy Storage System is being developed by Sunshine Energy (Aust) Pty. The project is owned by Sunshine Energy (Aust) Pty (100%).

The key applications of the project are frequency regulation, renewable energy smoothing and power quality management.

Contractors involved

Sunshine Energy (Aust) Pty is the owner. Sunshine Energy (Aust) Pty is the developer. Sunshine Energy (Aust) Pty is the technology provider for the project.

Additional information

Energy storage solution called SEA-Power (SEAP). SEA-Power(SEAP) is a patented Lithium battery technology, the Lithium battery-based power storage & management system that responds within milliseconds to frequency fluctuations by releasing or absorbing power from the electricity grid and the solar farm. Each SEAP consists of 4 MW battery storage and Battery Management System (BMS), fire suppression equipment, thermal management system, switchgear, UPS, and house power. Each module consists of 60 banks of battery blocks housed in individual 40-foot containers.

Methodology

All publicly-announced energy storage projects included in this analysis are drawn from GlobalData’s Power IC. The information regarding the projects are sourced through secondary information sources such as country specific power players, company news and reports, statistical organisations, regulatory body, government planning reports and their publications and is further validated through primary from various stakeholders such as power utility companies, consultants, energy associations of respective countries, government bodies and professionals from leading players in the power sector.
