ACCIONA Starts Spanish Hybrid Wind Power Storage Facility (Int'l)
Acciona Energia
Date: 2017-06-02
In Barasoain, northern Spain, ACCIONA Energia reports it has commissioned the first hybrid plant for storing electricity in batteries as part of a grid-connected wind farm in Spain.

The facility utilizes a storage system consisting of two batteries located in separate containers: one fast-response 1 MW/0.39 MWh power battery that can maintain 1 MW of power for 20 minutes, and another slower-response battery with greater autonomy of 0.7 MW/0.7 MWh that can maintain 0.7 MW for 1 hour. Both batteries are of Li-ion Samsung SDI technology and are connected to a 3-MW rated capacity AW116/3000 ACCIONA wind turbine. The batteries will store energy produced by the wind turbine when required.

The project received funding from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), which manages the Spanish Centre for Industrial Development. (Source: Acciona, 29 May, 2017)Contact: ACCIONA Green Energy Developments, +34 91 657 64 60, www.acciona-greenenergy.com
