Irish energy developer DP Energy has amalgamated with Spanish energy company Iberdrola to deliver 320 MW hybrid wind and solar project in South Australia at Port Augusta. However, the construction on this project would start in mid of 2020.
The Port Augusta Renewable Energy Park (PAREP) is the new generation of renewable projects designed to provide expectable power more consistently across the day. The Port Augusta Renewable Energy Park will be one of the southern hemisphere’s largest hybrid renewable power stations.
The project is predicted to produce approximately 900GWh per annum, which would sufficient to power around 180,000 households each year, with an emission saving of approximately 400,000 metric tonnes of CO2 annually. De Pietro, CEO of DP Energy said that the company would continue to work with stakeholders as well as the local community and support Iberdrola through construction and commissioning.
DP Energy has positively delivered 13 renewable energy projects with a total of 400MW in various dominions, with a further pipeline of projects totalling more than 2000MW under development across Australia, Canada, Ireland and the UK. Iberdrola is the global energy leader with a history of more than 170 years.
