Alfen supplied an energy storage system to Greenchoice for the Hartel wind park in the harbour of Rotterdam. The wind park consists of eight wind turbines, generating an average of 68MWh of renewable energy for 18,000 households.

The 10MW (10MWh) energy storage system is used to balance out the fluctuating energy production of the wind park and safeguard the stability of the electricity grid as the amount of green energy continues to increase. In addition, the battery provides support for the 50Hz frequency on the power grid.
