Innovation Award Finalists Renewable Energy Solution for Gold Road Resources Yamarna

Unlimited Energy Australia are proud to be finalists in THE SMARTER E AWARDS 2021 Outstanding Project category. The panel of experts have selected our project for Gold Road  Resources Yamarna exploration camp as a finalist for the award. 

The international SMARTER E AWARD champions the energy game-changers, paying tribute  to innovative solutions and technologies that provide an intelligent, sustainable, and cost effective energy supply.  

As a finalist our project for Gold Road Resources has been identified as exemplary for global  future applications, innovative in its design and of both economic and environmental  benefit. Our project comprises the design and delivery of a renewable energy hub (solar PV array and Tesvolt energy storage system) for the remote off-grid Yamarna exploration camp located 1200km north-east of Perth. The energy hub is scalable, modular, and re-deployable  allowing it to be easily expanded or moved, once exploration is complete, to a new site  providing benefits over its full-service life.  

The PV array has been uniquely designed to be surface mounted (there are no permanent footings installed onsite). It incorporates unique ballast trays that don’t require any drilling  or concrete, enabling system relocation when needed. Our PV mounting system reduces the footprint of the array as well as providing significant transport and installation cost savings  when compared to the conventional pole mounted solar installations.

The battery storage energy hub has also been custom designed to also provide an innovative mobile solution for easy transportation to future projects. The use of a Tesvolt battery storage system ensures the system can balance the site loads and meet future energy supply requirements as these systems are modular and scalable. 

These innovations have been designed to overcome the limitations of traditional renewable  energy infrastructure in the mining sector specifically. In temporary applications, such as the Yamarna exploration camp, the re-deployability provides an excellent value proposition as it negates the risks of investing in significant infrastructure during the early cycles of mine  development and meets the need for flexibility especially during the exploration stages. 

The project demonstrates that renewable energy in mining can be both economically and  operationally viable.
