ITP Renewables was engaged in 2018 to develop a concept design and layout for an 80 MWp PV plant near Atherton, Queensland.
The design provided the system developer with concept layouts of the PV array, inverters, and medium-voltage electrical reticulation. Two concepts were generated, based on fixed-tilt array mounting and single-axis tracking. The layouts were then used to inform both the potential size of system on the block of land, and provide inputs for a detailed yield estimate. The concept report provided the client with a capital cost estimate, expected operation and maintenance costs, P90 yield estimates, and high-level layouts and diagrams.
