The electro-chemical battery energy storage project uses lithium-ion as its storage technology. The project was announced in 2018 and will be commissioned in 2021.

Description

The Voltalia-Mana Storage – Battery Energy Storage System I is being developed by Voltalia. The project is owned by Voltalia (100%).

The key applications of the project are renewable energy integaration and electric energy time shift.

Contractors involved

Voltalia is the owner. Voltalia is the developer.

Additional information

The project is a part of Voltalia’s “Mana storage” project which consists of two 5 MW battery storage units. The project will be used for daily arbitrage; storing abundant and cheap electricity produced in the middle of the day and releasing it during peak consumption in the evening will enable to decrease the cost of electricity for the grid operator. This storage unit will cover each day c.4% of French Guiana ’s peak power consumption on average, i.e. the peak consumption of 12,000 local inhabitants.
