Capacity: 15 MW
Fuel Source: Hybrid: Solar, Diesel
Project Commencement: 2009
Commodity / Type: Zircon

The Pacific Energy owned Jacinth Ambrosia Power Station, 800km from Adelaide in South Australia, has been powering the Jacinth-Ambrosia mineral sands mine since 2009.

In 2020 the mine site owner agreed to upgrade the original diesel power station to a Diesel-Solar hybrid station complete with our proprietary Electric Turbo Compounding (ETC) that increases power, reduce emissions and improve fuel efficiency.

The upgraded hybrid power station features an expandable 3.4MWp bi-facial single tracking solar system providing the Jacinth Ambrosia Mine with low cost and highly reliable power whilst reducing diesel consumption by ~2.3 million litres and CO2e by ~6,000 tonnes annually.
