Renewable & Microgrid

GPA have demonstrable and extensive experience working within the renewable power industry.

From solar farms, wind farms and hydrogen to energy storage and hybrid micro grid systems, we offer innovative, sustainable, reliable and efficient solutions.

Our expertise in renewables has developed from frequently servicing solar farms and wind farms, remote solar powered facilities (for oil and gas, and water industries), and biogas and biofuel processing facilities. We continue to expand on services provided as renewable energy sources and technologies evolve.

GPA have extensive experience in the engineering and delivery of hybrid micro grid power systems utilising conventional and renewable technologies to deliver reliable cost effective and highly efficient solutions, which exceed client expectations.

GPA has also provided functional safety, risk assessment, type B compliance and hazardous area compliance services as part of major upgrade projects at numerous hybrid renewable energy power stations across Australia.

GPA can assist with:
