MHI to Introduce Large-capacity Lithium-ion Battery Energy Storage System to Power Grid of Orkney Islands in UK, Jointly with SSE

Tokyo, Nov 22, 2012 (Menafn – JCN Newswire via COMTEX) –Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI), jointly with SSE plc (formerly Scottish and Southern Energy plc), will begin an energy storage system demonstration project using the power grid in the UK’s Orkney Islands, which has a high proportion of renewable energy generation in relation to demand. The project aims at demonstrating power supply stabilization in the region by introducing cargo container-type large capacity energy storage system using a lithium-ion rechargeable battery, which has a maximum power output capacity of 2MW (megawatts). The storage system is slated to be handed over for operational use in early 2013.

The demonstration project will be conducted with the support of New Energy and Industrial Technology Development organization (NEDO) of Japan, under the programme of “Development of Technology for Safe, Low-cost, Large-size Battery System.” In the project, Mitsubishi Power Systems Europe, Ltd. (MPSE), the business base for MHI’s power system operations in Europe, and SSE Generation Ltd., the power generation unit of SSE group, will jointly provide the energy storage services to Scottish Hydro Electric Power Distribution plc (SHEPD), the SSE group company that handles power distribution in Scotland.
