Baroota Substation Upgrade

ElectraNet and SA Power Networks have prepared a Project Assessment Draft Report for the Baroota Substation Upgrade. The report describes the need which the two companies are seeking to address and describes the options that need to be considered. Page 20 of the report outlines one of the options being considered – Diesel generators combined with battery storage connected to 33kV at Baroota substation – this non-network solution would be operated with Vibe Energy to provide network support to ElectraNet during transformer outages.

The report ultimately finds the proposal should not proceed and states “ElectraNet has undertaken its own economic analysis of the reliability standard applying to Baroota in light of changes that have occurred since it was last reviewed and has found that a category 2 level of reliability is not justified from 1 December 2017.”
