Wandoan South Solar Security

♦ Vena Energy is seeking a Wandoan South Solar security solution for Stage 1 of this vast $650M Darling Downs renewable energy project.

Wandoan South Solar Project is located near Wandoan, 400km north-west of Brisbane has a proposed generation capacity of 650 megawatts – equivalent to the annual needs of up to 330,000 homes.

Once completed, the project, which is contracted to AGL, will be one of the largest solar projects in Australia and will be connected to Powerlink’s Wandoan South substation, located to the south of the project site.

Wandoan South incorporates the first stand-alone big battery to be operating in Australia’s main grid north of Victoria. It is around the same size as the original Hornsdale battery, and is being built by contractor Doosan in the Western Downs region, the centre for Queensland’s wind and solar projects, and could be co-located with a future gigawatt scale solar project.

While the tender does not specify the nature of the system required, it’s likely to incorporate access control, alarms, automation, perimeter protection, analytics and either a management solution or significant integration into an existing security solution.

This tender closes on June 30 – you can find out more here.
