Molonglo Battery

Grid support and design services

ITP has been contracted to provide grid support services with a Battery Energy Storage System at a substation in the Molonglo Valley in Canberra.


ITP have been contracted to provide a detailed design of a 10MW/20MWh BESS. This includes full detailed design and IFC documentation for the BESS and it’s connection to the adjacent zone substation. Communications design and commissioning requirements are if a higher standard for this project due to the implementation of a complex control scheme and the need to participate in the FCAS market.

The project will involve the installation of a the BESS to provide power to the grid during peak events. It will provide a significantly lower cost solution compared to expanding the substation. ITP will develop, finance, own and operate the project.
