A massive 17-20 GWh solar power plant will be built in Australia, powered by a 36-42 GWh battery. The electricity generated will be used not only by Australia but also by Singapore, 5,000 kilometers north. There was also a great video about the project.
The Sun Cable project is located in northern Australia, 800 kilometers south of Darwin, near the town of Elliott – at least here is the huge solar park. For this, an area of 120 square kilometers was determined, which is the size of Siófok. Writes: The central desert part of the Northern Territory region of the country receives plenty of sunshine all year round Villanyautósok.hu.
The solar panels will be manufactured in Darwin and the panels will be installed in 2024. Peak performance is expected to be between 17-20 GW and a battery-powered storage facility will complete 36-42 GWh.
The following video gives an idea of the importance of the solar park project:
Part of the electricity will be supplied to 80,000 Darwins, for which an 800 km high voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission network will be built. However, the real sensation will be the 4,200 km HVDC pipeline from Darwin to Singapore at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean that will supply 15 percent of the roughly 6 million urban energy needs.
Australia-Asia PowerLink (AAPowerLink) is a project in the project and means a really big deal. The company estimates that Asia’s energy needs will double over the next three decades as everyone wants to get rid of fossil energy.
The total cost of the project is estimated at A$30 billion, which is approximately A$7,650 billion.
It is planned that Darwin will be electrified from 2026 and Singapore from 2027, and full capacity will be reached by 2028.
