juwi to construct solar park for Jabiru in the Northern Territory

The project will integrate 3.9MW solar generation and a 3MW/5MWh battery, with 4.5MW diesel generation to balance sustainability with reliability.

The project is expected to meet the town’s annual electricity needs with energy that is at least 50 percent from renewable sources.

Juwi Renewable Energy Pty Ltd, our Brisbane-based subsidiary will construct a high penetration solar farm as part of EDL’s hybrid power solution for the town of Jabiru in the Northern Territory. EDL will own and operate the Jabiru Hybrid Renewable Project, which after completion is expected to meet the town’s annual electricity needs with energy that is at least 50 percent from renewable sources. Construction will begin shortly. The diesel power station will be completed by the end of 2021, and the solar farm and battery will come online in early 2022.

Dave Manning, Global Head of Hybrid at juwi said “Hybrid power solutions offer the potential to significantly reduce the amount of fossil fuel power generation within the Kakadu National Park” juwi looks forward to working again with EDL and the local community of Jabiru to deliver sustainable energy for the region.

The Jabiru project will represent the 6th project juwi has delivered or that is currently under construction. Overall, the juwi projects Down Under now include an investment volume in excess of 100 million EUR.

In addition to the development and operation of wind and solar parks, an important growth segment for the juwi group is the construction of hybrid power plants for non-grid industries such as mines. In such projects, PV and / or wind power plants are supplemented with storage units. These can then be intelligently integrated into existing island networks using software developed by juwi, the “juwi Hybrid IQ”. "With our world-famous DeGrussa project, we have shown what renewable energy solutions can achieve," says Stephan Hansen, member of the board and responsible for the company's international business. Juwi is currently building a megawatt solar park in South Africa to supply a gold mine with its own electricity.
