Vattenfall is constructing a $39m hybrid vitality park at Haringvliet within the Netherlands with a complete capability of 60 MW.
The park will mix photo voltaic panels, wind generators and battery storage and can ship sufficient renewable vitality to energy 40,000 Dutch households.
Work has formally began on constructing and putting in the six wind generators, positioned north of Goeree-Overflakkee Island between Middelharnis and Stad aan’t Haringvliet. The generators will likely be a most top of 150 meters with energy output within the area of 22 MW, which is sufficient to provide electrical energy to round 27,000 households.
Once the wind generators have been put in, the photo voltaic farm can then be constructed. The farm will include 124,000 photo voltaic panels with a complete of 38 MW. The batteries – equipped by BMW and with a capability of 12 MWh – will likely be put in in 12 delivery containers on the photo voltaic farm.
The value of the mission is €35m ($39m), an funding designed to additional Vattenfall’s intention of remodeling the sector by means of innovation and sustainable applied sciences.
Gunnar Groebler, senior vp and head wind enterprise at Vattenfall, stated that Vattenfall “desires to allow fossil-free residing inside one technology and hybrid energy crops are an essential constructing block for us within the path of 100 per cent fossil-free energy technology”.
“The complementary wind and photo voltaic technology profiles scale back the load on the grid in comparison with a single technology expertise. Hybrid programs present much less pronounced peaks and we see fewer complete occasions with out manufacturing. This results in a extra environment friendly use of the community infrastructure. In addition, the prices for grid connection are considerably diminished in comparison with stand-alone programs. This will scale back the price of renewable electrical energy and finally profit prospects.”
The vitality park is scheduled to be operational in September 2020.
Hybrid vitality traits and applied sciences will likely be mentioned by audio system at POWERGEN Europe in Paris in November. Click right here for particulars of the occasion.
