Salt Lake Trial Hybrid Solution
Salt Lake Potash is developing the Goldfields Salt Lakes Project, which they plan to be the “most sustainable, most rewarding fertiliser project in the world”.
In May 2019, Balance was approached to supply and trial a small-scale solar, wind and storage energy solution to collect real world performance data on renewable energy resources on site. The information will be used to evaluate and optimise future solution designs that will support water pumping at the potash mine being developed on Lake Way Salt Lake south of Wiluna.
