Integrating Energy Storage Solutions

Island Bonaire Case Study

Island of Bonaire
6 MW / 6 MWh

Utility provider ContourGlobal Bonaire, in cooperation with the Caribbean island of Bonaire’s power company, Water en Energiebedrijf Bonaire N.V., sought out an advanced energy storage system with Wärtsilä Energy to ensure the reliability of energy supply and increase its renewable energy generation. ContourGlobal Bonaire commissioned the project following years seeking solutions to integrate more renewable power into the existing island grid. This project is the beginning of a longer-term plan to fully modernise the island’s system and add additional capacity and renewable energy generation to the grid, while setting Bonaire on the path to achieving its 100% renewable target.

Sophisticated energy management system signals a boon for Bonaire
