Greenvolt “completing commissioning” of battery storage system at Portugal biomass plant
The project aims to modulate generated power, optimising the injected power at each moment through innovative “pouch cell” technology, according to Greenvolt.
This system, with a capacity of 5MW and an energy storage capacity of 5MWh, includes battery modules, inverters, rectifiers, transformers, HVAC systems, an automatic fire detection and extinguishing system, an energy management system and a proprietary control system.
The battery interacts seamlessly with the biomass plant’s control system, enabling automatic management of the available battery charge, continued Greenvolt.
The 20-month project involved engineering, installation and commissioning of an energy storage system, seamlessly integrated with the SBM control infrastructure.
The system, already showing productivity enhancements, is backed by performance guarantees, and is estimated to have a lifespan exceeding 10 years, added the organisation.
João Andrade, technical director of the Greenvolt Group, stated that “this project is a testament to our commitment to continuous improvement in the performance of our renewable energy production facilities”.
