Leclanche Touts St. Kitts-Nevis Solar Plus Storage Project (Int'l)
Date: 2019-08-09
In the Caribbean, the Government of St. Kitts and Nevis, the state-owned St. Kitts Electric Company (SKELEC) and the Swiss energy storage specialist Leclanche SA are touting the planned construction of a 35.6 MW solar energy plant and 44.2 MWh battery storage facility adjacent to the City of Basseterre on the island of St. Kitts. When fully operational, the system will provide between 25-30 pct of the island nation's electric power requirements.

Leclanche will serve as the prime engineering, procurement and construction contractor for the installation of both the solar photovoltaic (PV) system and battery energy storage system and will be responsible for the completed project's management, operations, maintenance and warranties. SKELEC and Leclanche have inked a 20-year Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) for the facility's output.

Ground-breaking is slated for mid-October 2019 for completion and commissioning in September 2020. (Source: Leclanche, PR, 7 Aug., 2019) Contact: Leclanche Anil Srivastava, CEO, +41 (0) 24 424 65 00, Fax: +41 (0)24 424 65 20,,; St. Kitts Electric Company, 869-465-2000,

Enel Green Power,Enertragis
Date: 2018-02-26
Italy's Enel Green Power (EGP) reports it is partnering with German wind developer Enertrag to construct a 22MW battery energy storage project at Cremzow, Brandenburg, Germany. The €17 million project, which will provide grid stabilization services through primary frequency regulation will incorporate Swiss manufactured lithium-ion batteries from Leclanche, the EPC contractor for the two-phase scheme.

The first 2MW section of the Cremzow plant is expected to be operational in April, with the remaining 20MW due online by year-end. The facility, which will be integrated with Enertrag wind farms and use surplus energy to charge the battery, will be owned by a special purpose vehicle in which Enel Green Power Germany has a 90 pct stake and Enertrag the remaining 10 pct.

Greensmith GEM Technology to Support Azores' Microgrid (Int'l)
Greensmith Energy
Date: 2018-01-12
Energy Business Review is reporting that Helsinki-headquartered Wartsila-owned energy storage integrator Greensmith Energy will supply an energy management system for the Graciosa Hybrid Renewable Power Plant microgrid power facility on the Azores Islands, Portugal.

The Graciosa Hybrid Renewable Power Plant will combine solar and wind generation, together with energy storage using lithium-ion batteries supplied by Leclanche.

GEMS embodies intelligent energy applications that focus on monitoring and operating energy storage power plants and hybrid power plants formed by energy storage, thermal generation, wind and solar.

When fully operational, the system will enable 1 MW of solar and 4.5 MW of wind power to be supplied to the local electricity grid, reducing the islands' reliance on imported fossil fuels and significantly reducing GHG emissions.
