CPS National was contracted to engineer, procure and construct a stand alone power system for utility provider Horizon Power in Exmouth, Western Australia.
With only one customer per 58km², Horizon Power serves the world’s largest and most sparsely populated utility service territory. Historically, the only feasible way to electrify at scale such large regional areas involved a traditional ‘poles and wires’ network.
CPS National designed the complete system including procurement and commissioning of:
- Jinko JKM290M-60 (x68) 290W module
- SMA SI 8.0H (3P) (x3) and SMA STP5000TL-20 inverters
- Murata 1.2kWh Lithium Ion Battery Modules (76.8kWh)
- 45KVA / 36.3kW 3P Prime Diesel Genset (Perkins Engine / Mecc Alte Alternator)
The safe and cost effective off grid solution provides utilities with a new asset class which can be effectively deployed in regional and remote areas.
