Battery System Upgrade at Kalkarindji

Epuron has successfully installed new Lithium-ion batteries at the Kalkarindji solar plant. The new batteries have been supplied by Toshiba and replace the existing lead acid batteries. The new batteries will improve the battery system performance at the solar plant allowing for a significantly larger number of cycles and increasing the operating life. The batteries and cloud predictive technology are used together to smooth the output of the solar generator during cloud events, which enables high penetration solar generation into the diesel mini-grid.
