URL More about Helen BESS - Landis+Gyr (Toshiba Group)
Toshiba Group and Landis+Gyr have won a major order to supply a megawatt-class battery energy storage system to Helen Ltd., a major energy utility operating in the capital of Finland. The energy storage system, the first in any Nordic country, will start operation in Helsinki in spring 2016. The energy storage system compensates for variations in weather conditions by storing and conditioning power from renewables and delivering it for periods ranging from a few seconds to several minutes, to iron out frequency fluctuations. Toshiba has developed technologies and products for all parts of the process. Landis+Gyr will supply a 1.2MW-0.6 MWh SCiB™ lithium-ion BESS for installation on a site next to the Suvilahti solar power plant, Finland’s largest, built as a part of a smart community project that Helen is developing in Helsinki’s Kalasatama District.
This data has been validated by project staff through a review of publicly available information about the project, and verified by the project owner. Information is accurate as of 2016-04-29.
