Enerven is pleased to share a significant milestone with near-completion of the construction of Wärtsilä Energy's 250MW / 250 MWh grid-scale battery at AGL’s Torrens Island Power Station.
At about the size of Adelaide Oval, the batteries will provide essential capacity when renewable generation is impacted during periods of high demand, supporting the growth of intermittent renewable energy in South Australia.
The flexible capacity provided by the Torrens Island battery delivers an efficient means for balancing the supply of energy from renewable sources, thereby supporting the stability and reliability of the grid.
Enerven were responsible for the design, construction and commissioning of the BESS substation. The project was completed on time, budget and demonstrates our strong project management capabilities on key renewable projects for Australia.
Key project specifications:
“We’re really proud to work on renewable projects helping to transition our energy grid and create a more sustainable and reliable future for Australians,” said Richard Amato, Executive General Manager Enerven.
In the coming months the Harmonic Filter Bank will also be finalised, as the last stage of the exciting project. The harmonic filter plays a critical role in improving power quality by reducing harmonic distortion. This ensures a stable power supply to the grid and allows the new battery system to operate unimpeded to full capacity.
