The Bendigo Hospital Project is the largest regional hospital development in Victoria, built by Lend Lease. Autonomous Energy has worked with Lend Lease on a number of construction projects to deliver the solar component of the new development. Lend Lease engaged Autonomous Energy through a competitive tender process to design, supply, install and commission the 200kW solar PV system at the new Bendigo Hospital. Autonomous Energy was appointed by Lend Lease as the solar Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contractor to deliver the 200kW grid connected solar PV system for the new Bendigo Hospital in Victoria. This is one of several large commercial solar projects delivered by Autonomous Energy for new developments built by Lend Lease. 

Autonomous Energy solution

  • Several design iterations were required to adapt to other changes in the building’s design and construction. Close collaboration with the architect, builder, client and other contractors was required to address the challenge of locating several services on the same roof.
  • The custom engineered solar power system features 770 solar modules and eight three phase inverters. It covers approx. 1230 m2 of roof space.
  • Fully integrated with the building’s BMS, fire panel and emergency isolation system.
  • Panels are optimally located to reduce the impacts of shading from other services.
  • Expected to generate close to 260,000 kWh per year, equivalent to reducing emissions by 328,000 kg CO2e.
  • Autonomous Energy has been engaged by the Hospital’s facility management company to provide complete solar PV system Operation and Maintenance.

Why Lend Lease chose Autonomous Energy

It was discovered through a comprehensive tender process that Autonomous Energy offered the best solution whilst also remaining cost competitive. Autonomous Energy has a track record in delivering solar in large, complicated construction projects that require a high degree of project management and engineering expertise.
