Saft Helps Stabilize Faroe Islands’ Grid
Saft, a Paris-based company who focuses on design development and manufacturing of high-tech batteries, is teaming up with German-based wind turbine manufacturer Enercon to create an energy storage system (ESS) which will aid the Faroe Islands.
The 2.3 megawatt project will be Europe’s first ever commercial deployment of a lithium-ion battery system that works in conjunction with a wind farm. The combination of the two will aid SEV, who produces and distributes power for the Faroe Islands, in addressing the Faroe Islands’ issues with grid stability by improving the dispersion of the renewable energy resources. The project will deliver ramp control, which according to Saft, will decrease the sporadic tendencies in the running power, as well as frequencyThe number of complete cycles or vibrations per unit of time. Rate of alternation in an AC current. Expressed in cycles per second or hertz (Hz). response and voltage control services.
