The Karadoc PV farm was built and is operated by BayWa r.e. and is the company's biggest solar project as of 2018. Part of the energy generated from Karadoc will be consumed by the Australian brewery Carlton&United Breweries. In the future, the brewer wants to supply all its power from renewable energy sources. To this end, it will procure around 74,000 gigawatt hours of solar power from the PV power plant every year, saving over 52,000 tons of CO2.
The farm utilises 19 SMA Medium Power Voltage Stations along with SMA plant control technology. The turnkey container solutions each feature 5.5MW power, contain two Sunny Central 2250-EV PV inverters as well as a medium-voltage transformer and a medium-voltage switchgear. They are thus perfectly prepared for connection to the utility grid. The components have been adapted to each other, thanks to which the medium voltage power stations can be installed and commissioned easily.
