ENI Australia, a subsidiary of Italian energy major ENI, has completed the acquisition of a construction-ready solar photovoltaic (PV) project near Katherine, in the Northern Territory of Australia, from Katherine Solar, a joint venture between Australia’s Epuron and the UK-based Island Green Power.

According to ENI, once completed, the project will be the largest PV farm in the Northern Territory, consisting of the installation of 33.7 MWp (Mega Watt peak) of ground-mounted PV panels, as well as a battery storage system with a capacity of 5.7 MVA/2.9MWh (Mega Volt Ampere and Mega Watt hour).

To ensure optimum operational performance, an innovative cloud coverage predicting technology will also be installed, ENI said, adding that these technologies would allow the plant to forecast and compensate for possible variations in solar irradiation by taking energy from a storage system so as to minimize the impact to the grid.
