Client: Syncline Energy / Delaware North

CTP Scope:

Construction Design and Hybrid Grid Box Supply

  • Detailed Design – Oct-2015

  • Commissioning – Dec-2015

Project Goal:

Offsetting polluting and expensive electricity produced by diesel generators through the integration of clean and economic solar PV generation.

Project Challenges:

Remote Location (No mobile reception): The Grid Box scope included extensive testing and commissioning with the diesel generator units prior to dispatch.

Project Results:

The installed system can dispatch the diesel gensets as required to minimise imported energy costs and provide backup generation. The hybrid system uses both solar and local diesel gensets to reduce reliance on an expensive microgrid in a remote location.

“CTP’s team has done an outstanding job at designing the complex hybrid PV system at Kings Canyon Resort – meeting the projects tight timescales, evolving requirements and communication challenges. The end result is a system that has improved the reliability and reduced energy costs for the customer in a remote and harsh location. I can only recommend CTP’s services and products for solar PV + diesel integration.”
