The Grand Riviere Wind Farm Battery Energy Storage System is a 5,000kW energy storage project located in Grand Riviere, La Trinite, Martinique.
The electro-chemical battery energy storage project uses lithium-ion as its storage technology. The project was announced in 2017 and was commissioned in 2019.
The Grand Riviere Wind Farm Battery Energy Storage System is owned by NW Groupe (100%).
The key applications of the project are renewables capacity firming and renewables energy time shift.
Nidec ASI and NW Groupe have delivered the battery energy storage project.
The new plant will be equipped with a sophisticated Energy Management System (EMS) that will allow the network operator to accurately estimate and respect the forecast of electricity production in order to achieve greater stability and maximize energy input to the grid.
All publicly-announced energy storage projects included in this analysis are drawn from GlobalData’s Power IC. The information regarding the projects are sourced through secondary information sources such as country specific power players, company news and reports, statistical organisations, regulatory body, government planning reports and their publications and is further validated through primary from various stakeholders such as power utility companies, consultants, energy associations of respective countries, government bodies and professionals from leading players in the power sector.
