The French company Saft, which is a 100% subsidiary of the oil and gas concern Total, has won a tender for the construction of an energy storage system with a power of 5.6 MW and a capacity of 6.6 MWh. It is reported by Renen.
The energy storage will be located at a 21 MW wind farm in northwest Finland.
The company says that this lithium-ion storage system will be the largest in Scandinavia, with a life of 15 years.
The energy storage system will optimize the generation of electricity by the wind farm, as well as provide reserve and cold start services. The Finnish company TuuliWatti owns a wind farm.
It was previously reported that Solar River and GE Renewable Energy announced that GE was selected to supply and implement one of the largest hybrid energy storage technologies for the Solar River project in South Australia.
As part of the Solar River project, a 200 MW solar power station will be constructed, which will include the installation of a 3-hour GE 100 MW battery storage system.
