  • FTC to supply Voyager solar tracker technology to GPG Australian project
  • The 128 MW Cunderdin hybrid PV solar and energy storage project is based in Western Australia
  • The project is supposed to be the largest DC-coupled solar PV and battery project in Australia

Solar tracker systems, software, and engineering services provider FTC Solar announced that it will be supplying its Voyager solar tracker technology to Western-Australian-based 128 MW Cunderdin hybrid PV solar and energy storage project.

The project is owned by Global Power Generation (GPG), a subsidiary of Naturgy Energy Group, and is claimed to be the largest DC-coupled solar PV and battery project in Australia.

By integrating battery energy storage system with a large-scale photovoltaic power plant, the project will enable additional flexibility in plant operation. This, in turn, will allow the facility to support the peak demand periods of the wholesale energy market.

Speaking about this development, Chief Business Development Officer for GPG Pedro Serrano said, “ The Cunderdin project will be the largest of its kind in Australia, and the high energy density and highly constructible design of FTC’s 2P Voyager solution will lend itself well in this development.”

Meanwhile, Chief Commercial Officer for FTC Solar Patrick Cook said, “We’re proud to be a part of this landmark project. Over the past 18 months, we have continued to expand our presence in Australia with orders and deliveries of more than 240 MW of trackers. This project represents our 23rd project in Australia, and our largest single-project in the country to date, with another impressive customer.”

The construction of the project is expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2022, and the commercial operation may begin by the first quarter of 2024.
