100 kWp Australian War Memorial Treloar

Australian Smart Group was chosen to provide this solar PV system to the Australian War Memorial Treloar annexe located in Mitchell, ACT, Australia.

The annexe stores thousands of exhibits of two types – equipment withdrawn from operational military use or items captured. These items are stored in the annexe due to lack of display space at the main display halls of the AWM in Canberra. Due to this, the space is constantly air-conditioned and maintained at a set temperature. This solar array will generate an estimate of 155 MWh per year.

  • Location: Mitchel, ACT, Australia

  • System Size: 100 kWp

  • Panel Model: 275W Trinasolar

  • Inverter Model: 100 kW ABB Inverter

  • Annual Output: 155 MWh

  • Annual CO2 Savings: 45 tonnes

The Challenge

The capacity and weight per m² of roof space we were allowed to apply to the roof was very limited. Due to this, the logistics of safely getting the solar panels onto the roof was a challenge.Also, the roof type is a Kingspan sandwich panel, making the installation and mounting of the solar panels even more challenging.

The Solution

ASG and its WSH consultants QSE Evolution overcame these challenges by incorporating heavy load materials, handling a plan that included offsite and onsite transportation, material handling, engineering and strict working at heights permits.

Technical specs

  • 100 kWp PV Solar System
  • 1 x 100 kW ABB Inverter
  • 364 x 275W Trinasolar PV Modules
  • Clenergy Solar framing combined with custom engineered fixing brackets
  • Class 3 Generator Connection Cubicle

Final Valuation

The client will benefit from this technology because the space is constantly air-conditioned and maintained at a set temperature due to the storage of valuable historic items in the building, meaning that the consumption of power generated during the day is 100% consumed by the mechanical load and other minor loads within the building reducing the overall energy cost for the client.
