    Maoneng wins planning nod for 240 MWp/480 MWh BESS in Victoria

    January 19, 2022 - SeeNews Renewables


      January 19 (Renewables Now) - Australian renewables developer Maoneng today said it has obtained development approval for its 240 MWp/480 MWh Mornington battery energy storage system (BESS) in Victoria.

      The AUD-190-million (USD 136.5m/EUR 120.4m) project envisages the installation of a standalone battery facility on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula. Planned to become operational in the middle of 2023, it will enhance the reliability of the regional power grid and support it during off-peak periods and during fluctuations in demand caused by seasonal tourism.

      The project will use lithium iron phosphate (LFP) batteries. The system will store electricity and dispatch it to the grid during peak demand periods. The power will be equivalent to the consumption of 40,000 Aussie homes.

      Maoneng said it is due to announce its choice for an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor in the next few weeks. Building works are expected to take around 12 months.

      The Mornington BESS is one of several such projects to be realised by Maoneng across Australia. In the past year, the company filed a development application for a 225 MW/450 MWh battery near Adelaide, South Australia, and was said to be seeking approval for a 200 MW/400 MWh battery near Tamworth, a 150 MW/300 MWh battery near Armidale and a 100 MW/200 MWh battery near Lismore, all in New South Wales.
