Sembcorp’s UK business has powered up its first 60 MW of “ultra-fast” battery storage capacity. The company has commissioned three 20 MW sites in England that will support grid operations. They bring Sembcorp Energy UK’s operating portfolio in Great Britain to 973 MW, and represent one half of a planned 120 MW energy storage portfolio, the company said. The three sites are located in Asfordby in Leicestershire, and Ellesmere Port and Runcorn in Cheshire, and were developed in partnership with Fluence. The entire 120 MW portfolio will be completed in 2020 and is one of the largest transacted fleets of its kind in Europe. Nomi Ahmad, Head of Sembcorp Energy UK, comments: “This is a significant milestone as we grow our business with a technology which supports a renewable future and helps deliver the UK government’s decarbonisation plan.”
