The Sebastopol Solar Farm – Battery Energy Storage System is a 24,000kW energy storage project located in Sebastopol, New South Wales, Australia.
The electro-chemical battery energy storage project uses lithium-ion as its storage technology. The project was announced in 2019 and will be commissioned in 2020.
The Sebastopol Solar Farm – Battery Energy Storage System is being developed by ib vogt. The project is owned by ib vogt (100%), a subsidiary of vogt group.
The key applications of the project are power smoothing, energy arbitrage and frequency control integration and improved reliability.
ib vogt is the owner. ib vogt is the developer.
ib vogt is the EPC contractor for the project.
The Energy Storage Facility would be capable of storing energy for release when the use or cost is beneficial. The facility would be approximately 24-30 MW rated capacity, provided by banks of lithium-ion batteries. The facility would provide network services including ‘energy smoothing’ and frequency control integration and improved reliability as well as energy arbitrage.
