CASE STUDY 1 – January 2020



In late 2019, Renewable Battery Storage Solutions (RBSS) designed and installed an energy storage system at Yallalong Station, a 348,000ha cattle station 650km north of Perth in Western Australia.

The cattle station, in the dry Murchison region north east of Geraldton, can swelter in +40°C temperatures in summer – sometimes as high as 48°C.

Yallalong Station owner Lyndon Brown wanted a 24-hour power supply for fridges, air-conditioning and other comforts of life, that are essential to attracting staff to work at the remote location.

RBSS installed 4 x Redflow ZCell zinc-bromine flow batteries and a 15kVA Victron Quattro inverter to manage, store and distribute energy from a 9.5 kilowatt/peak solar array. A three seasonal position solar panel frame was also custom-built for the station. The final system, which can store as much as 40 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of energy, enables the Yallalong Station to operate completely off-grid.

As well as providing a 24-hour power supply, the new battery system including a 3kW/peak wind turbine, will save the station at least $10,000 a year in diesel fuel, transport, logistics and maintenance costs.

RBSS chose the zinc-bromine flow battery technology and partnered with Redflow to offer the future in off-grid battery storage power stations.

At RBSS we know that regional clients want a product that will last in the tough, hard conditions, reduces the stress of managing a battery storage system in a remote location and avoids the need to replace batteries for a very long time.
