On Friday 22 June 2018, Jean-Bernard Lévy, the EDF Group Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Bruno Bensasson, the Group Executive Vice-President answerable for Renewable Energies and Simone Rossi, EDF Energy Chief Executive Officer formally opened two floor breaking initiatives within the United Kingdom: the Blyth off-shore wind farm and the West Burton B battery storage facility.
Located off the Northumberland coast, the Blyth off-shore wind farm consists of 5 generators with complete era capability of 41.5 MW. Several improvements have been in-built to contribute to enhanced competitiveness of off-shore wind energy.
Blyth off-shore wind farm
Blyth is the primary off-shore wind farm to make use of float and submerge know-how. The wind generators are supported with gravity-based foundations transported by floating, which reduces the set up prices. The eight.three MW generators are amongst essentially the most highly effective of their sort for use offshore. A devoted operations and upkeep workforce with 9 members has been arrange on the Port of Blyth.
West Burton B battery storage facility
The 49 MW battery storage facility situated at West Burton B energy station is the biggest challenge within the new frequency management system which can be deployed throughout the UK to enhance stability of the nationwide grid.
Against the backdrop of in depth growth of renewable power era and the closure of ageing energy crops, battery storage know-how helps stability of the grid and can be utilized for fast response to fluctuations in grid frequency.
Jean-Bernard Lévy, the EDF Group Chairman and CEO acknowledged: These two modern initiatives show our experience in renewable energies and electrical energy storage. They contribute vastly to decarbonisation of the power combine within the UK, our second largest market after France. They are each per our CAP 2030 technique, which goals to double EDF Group renewable power era by the yr 2030 and our Electricity Storage Plan with the set up of 10 GW of latest storage amenities supporting the electrical energy techniques by the yr 2035.
