Synergy has awarded the contract for the Western Australia Kwinana Battery Stage Two, which will include the commission and installation of approximately 300 battery container units and 72 inverters. 

GenusPlus Group has been granted the contract  for the provision of the civil and electrical balance of plant works, as well as installation and commissioning of the battery container units and inverters. 

Kwinana Battery Stage Two will be the biggest grid-connected battery in Western Australia, delivering 200MW of power with 800MWh of energy storage.

The Western Australian Government allocated $625 million for Kwinana Battery Stage Two as part of its Energy Transformation Strategy.

The project is expected to create 160 jobs during the peak of construction and the estimated completion date is late 2024.

Synergy Chief Executive Officer, David Fyfe, said GenusPlus Group was a key subcontractor in successfully delivering Western Australia’s  first utility-scale battery in Western Australia.

“Kwinana Battery Stage One was completed earlier this year,” Mr Fyfe said.

“Already it is providing stability to the South West Interconnected System (SWIS) by absorbing excess solar power during the day and releasing it in the evening.

“The Synergy team welcomes the opportunity to again partner with GenusPlus Group to deliver another important project in Western Australia’s decarbonisation journey.”
