  • LocationRAAF Base Learmonth

RAAF Base Learmonth is located on the North West Cape peninsula of Western Australia, approximately 30 kilometres south of Exmouth.

It is one of the Air Force’s three bases that can be used for exercises or operational requirements.

The Base was established in the 1950s to provide support for land, air and sea operations aimed at securing Australia’s northern approaches. During World War II, the (then) Learmonth Airfield, also known as ‘Potshot’, provided protection for the US Navy’s submarine base in the Exmouth Gulf. It also housed a variety of Air Force radar stations, providing early warning of enemy movements.

Client Requirement

The department of defense required a stand alone power system to supply uninterruptible power to a gate at the entrance of Learmonth RAAF base. This gate operates around 30 times a day and requires 1kVA power at 240VAC while operated.

This gate is located further away from the main camp and the power solution was required to be installed close to the gate in the outdoors with no shelter as a result a high IP rating enclosure was required.

The required system had to be designed in a scalable way so if the amount of load or the required battery autonomy increased in future, the offered system is still rated for.
