Tesla and the France-headquartered Neoen have been selected to build a 100 MW/129 MWh Tesla Powerpack system, which will be developed near Jamestown, South Australia, next to Neoen’s 100 MW Hornsdale wind park.
Under an agreement with the South Australian Government, Elon Musk’s Tesla, and Neoen, the battery – which three times more powerful than any other system in the world – will be designed to provide power to the grid at times of generation shortfall, as well as providing stability to the network, day and night.
Aurecon is the specialist and technical engineering advisor to the government of South Australia for the implementation of its energy plan. The company is providing advice across the entire programme, including the 100 MW battery, emergency gas generator and power supply contracts.
