We have started the installation of Li-ion batteries, the EMS and power control system for the BESS System, which will provide network services to Ausnet electricity distribution networks.
Located in Longwarry, a city in the State of Victoria, Australia, the Li-ion battery project has a capacity of 5MW/7.5 MW. This project will give full support to the distributor in a network with high congestion in summer, operating in the market the rest of the time with an agreement for the next 5 years.
As our General Manager, Jaime Vega, explains, “coming into the Australian market, with network services project with Ausnet, has been a challenging process. On that way, we feel very proud of for what it means to E22 and for the trust placed in our work. It is the result of the effort and professionalism of everyone involved to have achieved this adjudication, which we will carry out with rigour and excellence”.
AusNet has relied on ours technology and knowledge to start the installation this November, which is expected to be completed in early 2021, depending on the network connection process.
Moreover, Mr. Vega emphasizes that “we are active in more and more markets, generating opportunities and trust among potential customers. Despite the current situation, 2020 is a good year for us and we are working to make 2021 even better”.
The installation of our first Li-ion battery in Australia opens a new path for us in one of the leading energy storage markets worldwide. This new contract strengthens our position as an Storage EPC contractor with high quality standards and the ability to adapt to the requirements of each client.
