The Kwinana Battery Energy Storage System is a 100,000kW energy storage project located in Kwinana, Western Australia, Australia. The rated storage capacity of the project is 200,000kWh.
The project will be commissioned in 2022.
The government of Western Australia has issued a Request for Information (ROI) for parties interested in working on a 100 MW/200 MWh battery energy storage project at the site of a decommissioned power station. The project is set to be built at the site of Synergy’s Kwinana Power Station, and if found feasible, a contract will be awarded by May next year and the project could be operational by September 2022. AU$15 million (US$10.78 million) of Commonwealth Government funding has been initially secured to support the project.
