Atlantic Green has announced the mechanical completion of its first project, the 30MW Buxton battery energy storage system in England.
The BESS will have a 60MWh connection distribution and will assist Derbyshire in tackling the climate crisis, helping to reduce carbon emissions across the county to net zero said the developer.
Atlantic Green said the end of the construction phase means the site remains firmly on track for energisation in first quarter 2024.
The project, secured with a 30-year lease, marks a milestone for the developer as it is the first of a series of projects encompassing over 1GWh currently in its development pipeline which includes the 600MWh Cellarhead battery and 270MWh Project T.
Atlantic Green is a joint venture between Nofar Energy and Interland aimed at the development of UK battery energy storage.
"We are delighted to announce mechanical completion for our Buxton BESS Project," said Atlantic Green managing director Nick Bradford.
"The Buxton BESS Project will contribute to improving grid stability and pave the way for a greener and more sustainable energy future. We take pride in contributing to Derbyshire's efforts in tackling climate challenges and supporting the UK in reaching its net-zero targets, ensuring energy security for the future.”
