Bardzour Solar Farm and Storage Project
La Reunion’s grid has reached the limit of its integration capacity for the island’s significant, but intermittent, solar and wind renewables. The Bardzour project will combine the output of a solar PV farm with a Intensium Max+ 20E energy storage unit to inject energy into the grid at a constant power limited to 40 percent of the rated PV power. This will establish solar PV as a predictable and reliable part of the island’s energy mix, with no need for additional backup generation to compensate for the intermittent nature of renewable energy sources.
The 9 MWh energy storage system will comprise 9 Saft Intensium® Max+ 20E containers. Each container houses 17 racks of Saft’s Synerion® energy storage modules, battery management, thermal management and safety management systems.
