Dominion Salt and Vector

Finalist
2018
World first in battery and wind energy solution

Vector and Dominion Salt’s innovative project demonstrates the intersection of technology and sustainability in delivering commercial and environmental value.

Dominion Salt’s 660kW wind turbine combines with a 570kWh Tesla Powerpack, installed and configured with a custom control system by Vector. Dominion Salt can now store up to 570kW hours of energy which maximises the wind turbine’s efficiency and smooths the balance between onsite wind generation and variable plant load. 

This project puts both Dominion Salt and Vector at the leading edge of renewable energy, with this Australasian-first energy system.
