Hengtong Cable Australia will supply all the Cables and Harnesses to Risen Energy Australia who is developing the 132MW DC Merredin Solar Farm approximately 260km east of Perth in Western Australia’s Central Wheatbelt region. This will comprise of 33km of 33kV, 56km of LV Cable, 35km of Fibre, 114km of twin D.C Sub-array Cable and 615 Array Harnesses. All products are made by Hengtong.
Merredin Solar Farm is the largest solar farm committed to construction in Western Australia and once connected, will have an expected output of 281GWh of electricity annually, generating enough energy to power approximately 42,000 Western Australian homes.
The Merredin Solar Farm will consist of approximately 360,000 Risen Energy 370W high performance monocrystalline PERC module panels mounted on a single axis tracking system.
22 Inverter stations will convert the power from the solar panels to alternating current (AC) before entering an onsite substation. A transformer within this substation will then increase the voltage for injection to the Merredin Terminal Substation.
