Alfen supplies 12 MWh energy storage system to Vattenfall’s new hybrid energy park
Vattenfall is building a new hybrid energy park, consisting of solar panels, wind turbines and an energy storage system at Haringvliet in the Netherlands. The total capacity is 60 MW, enough to deliver renewable energy to 40,000 households. Alfen has been selected to deliver the 12 MWh energy storage system that will be connected to the hybrid wind and solar park.
The hybrid energy park will consist of six wind turbines with a power output of approximately 22 MW, a solar farm consisting of 124,000 solar panels with a total capacity of 38 MW and an energy storage system of 12 MWh based on BMW batteries that are also used in their electric vehicles. The energy park is expected to be fully operational in September 2020.
Stephanie Schockaert, salesmanager energy storage at Alfen: “We are proud to be selected by Vattenfall to supply our battery energy storage system for their innovative hybrid energy park. We have a broad experience across energy storage applications and the integration of solar and wind farms. Our prior work with both Vattenfall and BMW, amongst which a 3 MWh energy storage system at Vattenfall’s Prinses Alexia Windpark in the Netherlands, positions us well to also successfully deliver this project.”
