Wartsila, RWE Renewables developing large solar-plus-storage project in Georgia


Wartsila has won a contract to supply a 40MW / 80 megawatt-hour DC-coupled storage system for the Hickory Park solar project in Georgia, US, being developed by RWE Renewables.

Delivery of the Wartsila storage system is scheduled for September 2021, and the plant is expected to commence commercial operations in November.

Wartsila’s GEMS digital energy platform will control the entire hybrid plant, comprising close to 200MW solar PV as well as the 40MW battery.

The Wartsila system will enable a subsidiary of RWE Renewables, Hickory Park Solar, to sell nearly 200MW of generation from the solar farm to Georgia Power Company.

Wartsila’s IntelliBidder auto-bidding solution allows Hickory Park Solar to provide Georgia Power a day-ahead firming solar plus storage profile, which will improve the predictability of the intermittent generation.
