Enerven and SA Water to continue working towards 'Zero Cost Energy Future'

We are extremely pleased to announce that Enerven has been awarded a framework agreement contract for the next phase of SA Water’s major ‘Zero Cost Energy Future’ project, as the utility continues to work towards its ambitious goal of achieving zero net electricity costs from 2020. Sustainably reducing operational expenses, such as electricity, will enable SA Water to keep water service charges as low and stable as possible for their customers.

The next phase of the project will involve the design, procurement, construction and commissioning of approximately 154MW of roof and ground mount solar panels and 34MWh of storage. This will be rolled out across approximately 80 SA Water locations in both metropolitan and regional South Australia.

It is expected that over 250 local jobs will be supported through our engagement with SA Water to deliver this project. Enerven’s operations span the state of South Australia and its heritage as a subsidiary of SA Power Networks has fostered strong relationships with regional businesses and communities. Enerven’s program office will consist of local employees, new and current, as we draw upon the support of South Australian metropolitan and regional businesses to deliver site establishment and construction works across civil and electrical disciplines.

“We are thrilled to have been awarded this contract, and to be continuing work on this important project with SA Water,” said Enerven General Manager Richard Amato.

“Like Enerven, SA Water has a long history in South Australia and cares about its long-term future,” he said.

“To help SA Water on its way to a more sustainable future on the first phase of this project has been a real privilege, so we’re extremely proud to have the opportunity to continue that work in the next phase.

“From the design and the determination of the technical requirements to the procurement of equipment and project construction, we have been able to deliver SA Water an innovative one-stop solution for this project.”

Enerven’s vision for our customers is “Connecting you with tomorrow” and this project is another example of how we are helping our customers to achieve this through the delivery of complex and innovative solutions. Enerven has demonstrated capability and systems to deliver large projects with multiple locations across the state and to tight timeframes, with experience on projects such as the nbn rollout, Lincoln Gap Wind Farm and the Bungala Solar Farm. We will be drawing heavily on our extensive project management skills to deliver this complex and innovative solution for SA Water.

Enerven is currently completing the first phase of the project, installing just over 4MW of ground mount solar at three of SA Water’s largest facilities, which is due to be completed early 2019.
