Carnegie Completes Factory Acceptance Testing of Australia’s largest Battery System

Carnegie Clean Energy Limited (ASX: CCE) is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary, Energy Made Clean, has completed the factory build and testing of 1.6MW solar PV inverter and 2.6MWh Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) for the CSIRO. The BESS and PV inverter passed factory acceptance testing at its 3,500m2 workshop in Belmont and have been successfully delivered to site at the Murchison Radio

– astronomy Observatory (MRO), approximately 800km northeast of Perth, Western Australia. Factory acceptance testing involved a full functionality test of all the key equipment and control systems, including a simulated integration with the existing diesel power station. The batteries are now undergoing on site installation and integration with the
previously installed 1.6MW Solar PV array. The BESS and PV array will be integrated and commissioned with the existing power station on site in the coming months.
These are the largest batteries ever designed and assembled in Australia, which will be used to power one of the most sophisticated telescopes globally.
