In mid-2021 Tyree supplied Inverter Transformers for the recently commissioned Wallgrove Grid Battery located in western Sydney New South Wales. The Wallgrove project is intended to pilot synthetic inertia services using Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) technology. The power transmission provider expects that an inertia gap will be declared in NSW as existing sources of inertia, predominantly coal fired generators, are progressively withdrawn from the market.
The Wallgrove Grid Battery will pilot inertia services from a BESS as a network service using both synthetic inertia and Fast Frequency Response services.
Tyree General Manager for Engineering & Technical Lead when confirming the successful practical completion of the project including Tyree’s transformers; said ‘Tyree continues to support Australia’s energy transition with our innovative range of transformers and substation products for the integration of renewables and supporting technologies onto existing power grids and networks.”
The Tyree team are ready to supply a comprehensive range of purpose designed transformers, switchgear and substations for grid connection of applications including wind & solar PV generation, EV charging, Battery Energy Storage (BESS) and voltage stabilisation.
