Austco Polar Cold Storage
Established in 1987, Austco Polar Cold Storage is an Australian owned and operated temperature controlled storage facility. Due to the nature of cold storage operation, inherent to the business is high energy consumption
and costs. By using Sunpower P19 390W solar modules net energy savings are forecast to be 35% to 40%. Additional infrastructure includes standby FG Wilson 700kVA Genset which is fully synchronised to both solar PV and Grid to maintain uninterrupted power supply to all critical loads.
Through other projects in collaboration with AEES Group, parent company Wingara Ag (ASX: WNR) are expecting an approximate reduction in total net energy consumption of between 30% to 40% from a total of 5.925 MW of installed solar capacity. This includes the 275 kW JC Tanloden solar PV installation.
