Bristol Springs solar Project is at an advanced stage of development and earmarked as one of the next solar projects in Western Australia.
Conceptual design work and preliminary engineering estimates for the BSS Project were undertaken and completed during 2019/2020. EPC Technologies completed a FEED design encompassing Basis of Design methodologies, parameters, and equipment technologies used to ensure optimal energy yield, HV integration, safety, and financial returns. The system design was carefully considered to match all Western Power requirements covering infrastructure and access standards.
The site has been designed with 114 MWdc of high power class bifacial panels mounted on a single-axis tracking system. The uniformity of site conditions will allow for a simple, modular, and low-cost design. The site has previously been cleared and is mostly flat-lying with low-grade mineral sand soils common to the Swan Coastal Plain. The site is ideal for solar power developments with low subsurface risks, low environmentally sensitive areas, and no obstructions in the overhead transmission line route.
