Ampcontrol and Siemens partner on renewable energy solutions

Ampcontrol and Siemens have announced a collaboration agreement to work on technology solutions for battery energy storage and grid applications in the Australian renewable energy market.

The two organisations already have a history of working together on major energy and renewable projects. Under the new agreement, Ampcontrol will become the exclusive Australian supplier for solutions designed around Siemens’ SINAMICS S120 inverters. These inverters provide virtual synchronous generator functionalities for system strength and grid stability in the network.

“We have great respect for Siemens. Not only do they bring benchmark technology to the market, but they are also committed to providing the right-fit solutions that match some of the critical needs of our industries,” said Rod Henderson, Ampcontrol Managing Director & CEO.

“The influx of renewable energy sources in Australia means the greater the challenge for stable and sustainable storage and transmission solutions. Our collaboration with Siemens will ensure that we can deliver these solutions to our customers quicker than we have ever been able to, helping industry to decarbonise and help make net zero a reality.”

The collaboration is intended to produce innovative, custom solutions to complex problems, with the ultimate goal of decarbonising industry. Ampcontrol was recently named as one of Australia’s top 10 Most Innovative Manufacturers for 2024 by @AuManufacturing.

“It’s great to formalise the relationship with Ampcontrol, who we’ve worked with for many years,” said Darryl Kaufmann, Head of Siemens’ Digital Industries Division in Australia and New Zealand. “This comes at a critical time for the renewable energy sector and the energy transition. A successful energy transition requires collaboration — especially to scale up and meet our net zero commitments.

“It also requires innovative and versatile thinking, which is supported by digitalisation and automation,” Kaufmann said.
