Financing of the expansion won the 2019 Asia Pacific Energy Storage infrastructure project financing award from IJ Global.
The 50MW/ 64.5MWh expansion, supported by Tesla, will further showcase the complete benefits that grid-scale batteries can provide to the National Electricity Market (NEM) and Australian consumers.
This project will also see the whole facility upgraded to provide a new ‘virtual inertia’ service in addition to the services already provided.
Construction has commenced, and it is expected it will be complete in the first half of 2020.
