Industrial powerhouse LG has completed one of the largest installations of roof-mounted solar panels in the world at the Moorebank Logistics Park in Sydney.
More than 7,500 LG NeON 2 panels have been installed by Modcol, a leading Australian electrical company that services large-scale development and construction projects.
The 3MW installation is expected to deliver approximately 4800MWh of energy per year, the equivalent of powering more than 7,300 homes.
Gus Paviani, Corporate Business Development Manager –Solar & Energy at LG Electronics Australia said the installation is one of the biggest in the Southern Hemisphere.
“Alongside our partner Modcol, LG is helping to power one of the most important freight hubs in Australia. LG NeON 2 solar panels have technically advanced and reliable cello technology that deliver an impressive amount of power per panel during the 25-year product warranty.
“LG panels allow customers like Qube to design a solar system that meets their unique requirements such as available space, power output, and savings over the life of the system.”
The Moorebank Logistics Park project, operated by Qube, is Australia’s largest intermodal logistics precinct. When activated, the photovoltaic system will feed into a high-voltage embedded power network, meaning power can be consumed from nearby warehousing facilities or distributed to other parts of the precinct.
The 400W LG NeON 2 solar panel is designed for commercial systems seeking an efficient use of space and a high performing solar panel with great output efficiency. The LG NeON 2 400W panel is a similar physical size to many conventional 360W 72 cell panels. This means the LG NeON®2 400W used by Modcol in the Moorebank project will produce 11% more electricity per square metre than a 360W panel.
