The avocado farm, 330 km south of Perth, requires a stable power supply for irrigation pumps and other technical systems. The energy from a 53-kilowatt photovoltaic system has to be stored for the evening hours, since the utility grid is not always available in this remote region.
To ensure that the power and water supply are both self-sufficient and environmentally friendly, the solar installation is combined with a TESVOLT storage system and salt-water batteries. The TESVOLT TS 48 V absorbs peak loads while the saltwater batteries ensure that the base load remains stable. This means the farm runs on 100% renewable energies all year long.
The project was recognised as outstanding by “the smarter E AWARD” in 2018.
