Reduce costs. Improve power quality & reliability. Reduce carbon emissions.
Low cost renewable energy is competitive with traditional fossil fuels in many off-grid (e.g. agricultural, industrial, desalination etc.) and mining applications globally.
juwi developed a 10.6MW Solar PV battery hybrid system to fully integrate with an existing 23MW diesel-fired power station at the DeGrussa Mine in Western Australia. This premium high grade copper mine is owned and operated by Sandfire Resources NL. juwi's innovative hybrid system saves around 12 thousand tonnes of CO2 and 5 million litres of diesel for the mine each year.
juwi’s award winning project at Degrussa is the world’s largest off-grid solar hybrid project at a mine and has been successfully operational for more than a year.
