Almelo Hybrid Energy Storage System1, Netherlands

By Carmen

The Almelo Hybrid Energy Storage System1 is an 8,800kW energy storage project located in Almelo, Overijssel, Netherlands.

The electro-chemical battery energy storage project uses lithium-ion as its storage technology. The project was commissioned in 2020.

Description

The key application of the project is frequency stabilising primary control power.

Contractors involved

Leclanche has delivered the battery energy storage project.

Additional information

The project is an extension of an earlier pilot system created by Leclanché and S4 Energy. The overall system, now in operation, is a combination of Leclanché lithium-ion battery storage technology coupled with S4 Energy‘s flywheel storage to provide primary control power for frequency stabilization to TenneT, the local transmission grid operator. The 8.8 MW capacity battery system provides 7.12 MWh of stored renewable energy. Coupled with six of S4 Energy’s proprietary KINEXT flywheel storage systems which deliver 3MW of power, it will help improve the reliability of the grid, protecting it against the fluctuations caused by the intermittency of renewable energy generation.
