My group is designing a “washing machine”/ clothes washing system and we have concluded that some electrical power will be required for its operation. As such we need to provide electricity for an electric motor, we believe it is fair to assume that some electrical power will be available in these remote locations such as a reclaimed cattle stations, our reason being that electrical power is an essential life requirement and as a result electricity will always be provided before a washing system .
We would like to know, is it fair for us to assume there will be electricity available on any site which the washing system will be implemented? If so is it likely to be a 12 volt battery/solar/generator system or 240 volt system of some description.
It’s fair to assume that there will be electricity on site and that it will likely be a 240 volt system. However, it’s important to remember that energy supply is often limited in Cape York so you should ensure that your design is not too energy intensive. I’d recommend taking a look at Design Area 4, which details some information about energy in Cape York.
