EDL to deliver sustainable energy for Jabiru

15 Feb 2021 4:56 PM | Sonia Harvey (Administrator)

Leading global energy producer EDL will build, own and operate the Jabiru Hybrid Renewable Project to supply power to the remote, off-grid Northern Territory town of Jabiru.

EDL Chief Executive Officer James Harman said that the company welcomed the opportunity to work in partnership with the Northern Territory Government to deliver sustainable energy for Jabiru, as the community transitions from its mining legacy to its future as a tourism and services hub.

“EDL began more than 30 years ago with the development of the Pine Creek Power Station in the Northern Territory, and we’re very proud to continue our commitment to the Territory with Jabiru being our 100th site world-wide.

“Once completed, our hybrid renewable power station will provide Jabiru with at least 50% renewable energy over the long term, without compromising power quality or reliability,” said Mr Harman.

“We are proud to contribute to the Territory’s 50% renewable energy target by 2030 through this sustainable energy solution.”

The project will integrate 3.9MW solar generation and a 3MW/5MWh battery, with 4.5MW diesel generation to balance sustainability with reliability. Construction will begin shortly.

The diesel power station will be completed by the end of 2021, and the solar farm and battery will come online in early 2022.
