US power generation contractor and renewable energy company Blattner Energy has completed construction of a 20MW lithium-ion battery storage project.

The Lee/DeKalb energy storage system (ESS) in Illinois, US, is now providing the regional transmission organisation, PJM Interconnection, with the frequency regulation support needed for the area.

The project included Greensmith Energy Management Systems as the integrator of eight containers, 10 feet by 40 feet in size, housing 2.5MW of LG Chem lithium-ion batteries each.

Blattner Energy engineered the system, procured the technology and equipment, oversaw the installation and interconnection of the system technology, as well as completing the testing and start-up activities.

Stephen Jones, director of solar, Blattner Energy, said: “Battery storage will be a key technology in supporting the stability of our grid and the intermittency of some renewable generation sources.”

Corvus and Siemens collaborate on ESS for Scandlines ferries
Share page with AddThis

Canadian Energy Storage Systems manufacturer Corvus Energy and Siemens have been awarded a contract to supply lithium energy storage systems to hybrid passenger ferries.

German-Danish ferry operator’s Scandlines agreed to have its M/V Berlin and M/V Copenhagen ferries fitted with a 1,050VDC, 1.5MWh ESS built from 231 Corvus Energy AT6500 advanced lithium polymer batteries.

The batteries will be used alongside a Siemens converter system and powered by four diesel gensets.

The AT6500 Lithium Polymer battery will provide 6.5kWh of energy in a ~2.5 cubic foot volume. Weighing 65kg, it is available in 12V, 24V, 48V and 96V configurations.

The hybrid propulsion system will also be equipped with a scrubber to clean the engines of exhaust streams of pollutants, which - according to a statement from Corvus - is expected to reduce sulphur emissions by “at least 90%.”

“The M/V Berlin and M/V Copenhagen are examples of the significant benefits both operationally and environmentally of battery hybrid propulsion,” Andrew Morden, President and CEO of Corvus Energy said.

The ferries will have a similar system to the ESS Corvus and Siemens delivered to the hybrid vessels currently operating on Scandlines’ Puttgarden-Rødby route.

Each ferry will have the capacity to carry 1,300 passengers and 460 cars or 96 trucks.
