The Santos GLNG pipeline provided Auspac Energy with a great opportunity to showcase our renewable energy efficiencies in the field of cost-benefit analysis of renewable energy technology. Our services included engineering (civil and electrical), procurement, construction management, technical due diligence, site assessment, technology assessments and appraisals, factory acceptance testing, commissioning and operations and maintenance training for end users.
The project was constructed for a remote mining site in Roma Queensland where provisions of an AC mains supply connection to a power utility was not practical or cost effective.
There were over several sites spread across the Roma pipeline area, each standalone system had a 10 day full load autonomy. The system size ranged from 500W to 2500W.
Auspac Energy also designed and supplied PV combiner boxes fitted with ABB circuit breakers and Aux contacts to connect to Santos AMS. We also supplied DC cabling, wind loading test data, developed O&M manuals, detailed AutoCAD single line diagrams, electrical schematics, site plans, array layout and concrete slab layouts.
The main benefit of the project was that power could be made assessable through the use of the solar system in a remote mining area where it was difficult and costly to connect to AC power. Our proposed design solution was a cost effective and sustainable solution.
