Conergy and BMD Constructions have completed construction on the Daly River project, a one megawatt solar facility situated near the remote indigenous community of Nauiyu in the Northern Territory (NT), a region about 220 kilometres south-west of Darwin, Australia. Nauiyu is one of the first NT communities to be chosen for the Solar SETuP program, a four-year, $55 million investment by the NT Government and the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA), which aims to bolster the energy production needs of remote communities by integrating advanced solar and battery technologies into the local grid. Power and Water Corporation, the local utility, will roll out this program which will incorporate solar power in the delivery of electricity to the local communities.
“We are committed to helping the local communities meet their growing energy needs sustainably by delivering the latest developments in solar technology that will transform their power generation infrastructure, enabling them to prosper while making a positive contribution to the preservation of their environment,” said Alexander Lenz, Conergy‘s CEO. Hendrik Bohne, VP - EPC, APAC adds, “Both Conergy and BMD Constructions are very pleased and honored to be awarded the contract for this project. Together we will bring to the Daly River project our complete EPC services offering that draws upon the comprehensive experiences, collective resources and project management expertise of both our companies.”
In 2012 Conergy delivered a 1 MW integrated hybrid solar system to remote communities in Australia’s NT. This project has been contributing emission-free power for the last 5 years and was designed to provide up to 30% of the average daily electricity demands for each community. Conergy is also the owner and developer of the Lakeland Solar & Storage project, one of the first utility-scale solar and storage facilities in Asia Pacific.
