JUWI in Australia

Find out more on the fascinating hybrid projects built in Australia.

Energizing sustainability

JUWI is active in Australia since the beginning of 2014. The main focus was initially placed on hybrid projects consisting of renewable energies, storage units as well as necessary control components. JUWI later also offered project development and EPC services as well as innovative products and solutions to support its customers here.

JUWI constructed three remarkable hybrid projects: The mining project "deGrussa Sandfire" (10.6 MW photovoltaics and battery storage), the solar storage and power plant for the University of Queensland on the Heron Islands with a capacity of four megawatts and the JUWI Hybrid IQ controller for the Goldmine Agnew. In 2020 JUWI was part of the construction of solar park Greenough River (37 megawatts) as an EPC service provider.

 

 

In 2016, the largest JUWI project in Australia to date also resulted in the largest solar hybrid power plant in the world: Our Australian JUWI subsidiary built and commissioned the power plant for the mining company Sandfire Resources NL.

Solar hybrid power plant Agnew Gold Mine

In 2019 an agreement was signed with Energy Developments Pty Ltd (EDL) to deliver a hybrid solar solution at the Gold Fields Agnew Gold Mine project in the Eastern Goldfields region of Western Australia.

The project consists of a 4 MW Single Axis Tracking PV installation together with cloud forecasting and an advanced microgrid control system to enable integration with the mine off-grid network. Together with the thermal power station, being provided by EDL, the project supplys reliable electricity to the critical and non-critical loads of the mine site.

JUWI is pleased to be working with EDL as one of the largest off grid Independent Power Providers in Australia to deliver and integrate another landmark renewable energy system on a mine site in Western Australia.

As a leading global producer of sustainable distributed energy, EDL is pleased to be supporting Gold Fields’ Agnew Gold Mine through the development of a fully integrated hybrid energy solution that will improve reliability, reduce operating costs and reduce environmental impact.

James Harman
Chief Executive Officer, EDL

This project is a great example of how to implement renewables into an existing minesite. 

During their work, the team was challenged with taking an operating minesite off its existing grid connection and replacing it with a full hybrid solution. A staged, gradual approach was undertaken, and the results speak for themselves. Degrussa and Agnew will continue to be the benchmark of how renewables can be delivered on operating mine sites.

All business starts with a conversation.

We look forward to hearing from you!
