The Kwinana Battery Energy Storage System (KBESS) project is a 100MW/200MWh battery storage facility located at the Kwinana Power Station (KPS) site in Western Australia.
KBESS is Western Australia's first large utility-scale battery project and a key factor in the state’s plan to transition to net zero. The system will absorb excess energy from rooftop solar when the sun is shining and release it in the evening, when demand peaks; providing additional security & stability to Western Australia's power system.
Westforce have delivered all civils, concrete, earthworks and drainage associated with the project, including but not limited to:
Bulk earthworks, concrete foundations, cable culverts, blue metal hardstand areas, internal roads, perimeter fencing, and associated finishing works to allow subsequent installation and commissioning by Genus of 330kV Substation Facility, Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) Facility and associated infrastructure.
The concrete component includes footings, slabs, plinths, walls pedestals, pile foundations, precast culverts, and fire wall panels.
