Energy Storage News:

A second installation phase has been completed at TotalEnergies’ battery energy storage facility in Dunkirk, northern France, bringing its output and capacity to 61MW / 61MWh.  

The battery energy storage system (BESS) was already France’s biggest system of its type — at 25MW / 25MWh — when it was inaugurated in January 2021. 

The project, sited at one of the vertically integrated energy company’s refinery sites in Flandres, Dunkirk, now hosts 27 containerised battery storage systems supplied by Saft, using 2.5MWh units of the energy storage tech provider’s Intensium Max lithium-ion BESS product. 

Engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) duties were carried out by electricity generation and distribution services provider Omexom, including civil works and system integration services, connecting the BESS to the extra high voltage transmission grid.
