CPS National was contracted to design and build a fully-transportable solar-powered retail fuel outlet at Onslow, Western Australia.
For the project, CPS supplied:
- TRINA TCM260PCO-5A module
- SMA SI 8.0H (3P) and SMA STP5000TL-20 (x2) inverters
- Sunny Sensory Box and Sunny Webbox
The initiative will allow for Caltex Australia to supply 24-hour access to diesel in remote parts of Western Australia’s Pilbara Region. The unmanned outlet will operate via a card payment system.
In what is considered a world-first, the site will offset a total of 9.12 tonnes of CO2 per annum and eliminates the expensive and inefficient requirement to use a generator to power the fuel pumps, particularly when there are only a handful of customers using the pumps every day.
