GMA Garnet Microgrid
At Port Gregory in the Mid West, Advanced Energy Resources (AER) built a $11.2 million microgrid to supply GMA Garnet's nearby mine. It aims to provide up to 70 per cent of the mine's power needs.
Balance was to design, supply and install a 4.4MVA / 586kWh BESS and microgrid controller which enables the system to electrically be decoupled from Western Power, thus only use renewable energy for operations.
