Avocado farm in Western Australia
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 power grid is not always available in the remote region.
In order to guarantee a self-sufficient and at the same time environmentally friendly power and water supply, the solar system is combined with a TESVOLT storage system and salt water batteries. The TESVOLT TS 50 absorbs peak loads, the salt water batteries ensure a stable base load. In this way, the farm runs 100 percent on the renewable energies all year long.
The project was awarded the "The smarter E Award" in 2018 as an outstanding project.
