About the hybrid project
The Agnew Hybrid Renewable Project is Australia’s largest hybrid renewable energy microgrid and the first to utilise wind generation at a mine site.
EDL is delivering this ground-breaking project under a 10-year agreement with Gold Fields in two stages.
Stage 1 is a new off-grid 23MW power station incorporating 16MW gas and 3MW diesel generation and 4MW photovoltaic solar. Stage 1 was completed in July 2019.
Construction of Stage 2 is underway and due for completion in 2020. This phase of the project is supported by the Australian Renewable Energy Agency and includes five wind turbines that will generate 18MW, a 13MW/4MWh battery energy storage system and an advanced micro-grid control system.
