The scope of works of this project is a Solar Photo Voltaic (PV) renewable energy installation near Harts Range, Northern Territory (NT). The project is for a Solar PV system of the order of 1000kW to supply the Base. The Solar PV system will require integration with the existing diesel power station on site, including provision of an energy storage system, integration with a live radar capability and management of considerable power quality and other technical issues such as transient loads. An integral part of this project is the ongoing support and maintenance of the system once it has been installed. This maintenance is to be provided by the contractor who installs the system for twenty four months, with extension options for an additional 24 months (48 months total).
