Pacific Energy Solutions was engaged by Ergo Engineering Consultants to provide specialist engineering services for a number of renewable energy feasibility studies for Watercare Services Ltd. Watercare’s mission is to provide reliable, safe and efficient water and wastewater services. To help deliver this mission, Watercare implemented a new Energy Policy in 2016 aiming to become a leader in energy efficiency and to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions.
Rob and Mandy Everall purchased their wonderful property on Rakino Island in 2014. Rakino Island lies in the Hauraki Gulf, just beyond Motutapu Island and is a three quarter hour ferry ride from the Auckland CBD. There is no reticulated power so an off-grid system is the only access to electricity.
This project won the 2015 SEANZ award for Most Innovative Implementation and a Renewables Innovation Award in 2015 from the Sustainable Business Network.
The exciting thing about this project is it was driven by the students themselves. They researched solar energy, made some cost-saving calculations and looked at what some other countries are doing.
We installed a 70 panel 21kW onto Napier Intermediate School in the sweltering heat last week - how exciting for the 2017 year 7 students to return and see their project a reality. They will continue to study both the financial and environmental benefits of this system.
2.2MW ground mount, 8,500 panels (12-month project)
Assisting with system design and layout, electrical project management, full installation and oversight of contractors.
We were awarded the contract to build the 2.2MWp Solar Farm at the Apia Racecourse in Samoa. The Racecourse Solar Farm was opened during the Small Island Developing States conference in Samoa by the Samoan Prime Minister Tuila'epa Sai'ilele Malielegaoi and the then- NZ Minister of Foreign Affairs, Murray McCully.
Infratec is delivering European Development Fund contract to design, supply and install a HV network, two power stations and a 150kW solar PV system on Kiritimati Island in the Republic of Kiribati.
The project will centralise the power system for Kirimati, providing a more reliable, efficient and safe electricity supply for the island. The 150kW solar system will reduce the islands demand on expensive diesel.
Kiritimati Island, in Kiribati’s Line Islands group, is the world’s largest coral atoll and the largest of the 33 islands in the Republic of Kiribati. The island is approximately 3,300 km east of Kiribati’s capital, Tarawa.
The project is expected to be completed in March 2018.
Infratec is delivering an Asian Development Bank funded project to deliver solar PV mini-grids on four of the Southern Group of Cook Islands – Atiu, Mangaia, Mauke and Mitiaro.
The mini-grids will supply each island with approximately 95% of their electricity needs, with an installed capacity of 1.3MWh of solar and 7.3MWh of battery storage.
The systems will reduce diesel consumption by about 360,000 litres annually, will remove about 960 tonnes of CO2 emissions a year and will supply the islands’ residents with a more reliable power supply.
Infratec is engaging Cook Islanders to support delivery throughout the project and building the capacity of local communities to support ongoing maintenance and operations of the systems.
The project will be completed by December 2017.
