Boonanarring Solar Farm

Boonanarring Solar Farm – 3 MW

Western Australia 2020

Sunrise Energy Group build, own, operate this 3 MW single axis tracking solar farm located next to Image Resources Mineral Sands mine.

The solar farm was connected and commissioned to the grid as a “behind the meter” configuration in September 2020. It is expected to provide approximately 25% of the required electricity for the mine on annual basis.

For this project SMA supplied Sunny Central 2500-EV PV inverter in the integrated MV Power Station MVPS2500-20 solution and on site commissioning service. Extensive environment protection option for the MVPS was selected to ensure optimal performance in the harsh mining environment.

The Solar farm also consists of LONGi solar panels and a NEXTracker single axis tracking system.Sunrise Energy Group was also delivered a new overhead power line and primary 22kV protection of the solar farm.

The entire project was built and commissioned in 12 months, on budget, incident free and with an entirely local workforce. Sunrise Energy Group are now responsible for the operations and maintenance of the solar farm.
