- Shanghai Electric plays a pivotal role by offering a comprehensive energy storage solution
- The last in-progress project, Fiskerton II-A, in the suite of eight solar projects in Lincolnshire, has been connected to the grid
Shanghai Electric has shared its recent achievements in the energy storage business. The company’s 100MW/100MWh REP1&2 energy storage station in the UK (“REP1&2”), its first large-scale overseas energy storage project, has entered commercial operation.
The development is followed by another milestone, which marks the grid connection of the Fiskerton II-A solar project (“Fiskerton II-A”), the final one of the eight solar projects in the country.
The REP1&2 initiative in Kent is now equipped with advanced lithium iron phosphate batteries manufactured at Gotion New Energy’s Nantong facility. Originally developed by Pacific Green, it was recently acquired by a subsidiary of Generali, Italy’s largest insurance company and the world’s third-largest. Shell Energy Europe Limited is now officially responsible for its operation, poised to enhance the UK’s power system’s efficiency, reliability, and sustainability.
Shanghai Electric played a pivotal role by offering a comprehensive energy storage solution, which included 38 battery containers and 20 PCS containers. The successful completion of this project signifies Shanghai Electric’s significant progress in expanding its presence within the global energy storage market.
The successful grid connection of the Fiskerton II-A project in Lincolnshire is the culmination of a series of eight solar projects across the UK, spearheaded by Shanghai Electric. This achievement underscores the company’s position as a pioneering force in solar innovation, committed to delivering inventive and sustainable solutions to meet the increasing global demand for renewable energy sources.
“The eight solar projects delivered by Shanghai Electric in Lincolnshire will provide 128,117MWh green electricity in the UK each year. It is also the first overseas project undertaken by Shanghai Electric, where it is responsible for investment, financing, construction, grid connection, and operation of the solar plant, showcasing Shanghai Electric’s comprehensive capabilities in delivering state-of-the-art solar solutions that require advanced, high-efficiency, high-durability solar products,” said Stuart Mellor, project manager of Fiskerton II A project.
