Wärtsilä is supplying GIGA Storage BV with a 25 MW / 48 MWh energy storage system, the largest energy storage system in the Netherlands to date, that will optimise the power system, regulate energy frequency and reliability on the grid, and improve revenues.
The GIGA Buffalo battery will store the equivalent of the annual energy consumption of more than 9,000 households each year and save up to 23,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions per year.
The system will employ Wärtsilä’s GridSolv Quantum, a fully integrated, modular, and compact energy storage system. Wärtsilä’s GEMS Digital Energy Platform, a smart energy management system, uses machine learning and historic and real-time data analytics to optimise the complete system. GEMS software will enable GIGA Storage BV to remotely monitor, operate, identify, and diagnose equipment with unrivaled safety, reliability, and flexibility. Finally, the system will be optimised by Wärtsilä’s Service+ GAP solution, which provides comprehensive system maintenance with performance guarantees.
