Axpo inaugurates first large-scale battery storage facility in Europe

Axpo has inaugurated its first large-scale battery storage facility in Europe.


The inauguration in Sweden marks the latest milestone in the expansion of the Swiss developer’s battery business.


According to the company, the 20MW/20MWh plant has been connected to the electricity grid by local energy company Landskrona Energi.


The company shared that it has continued the development, construction and commercial optimisation of large-scale batteries. The latest project has been followed by several other projects in Switzerland and Europe.


“We will continue to expand our storage activities over the next few years. The importance of large storage capacities is crucial in the course of the energy transition,” Axpo Group head of batteries & hybrid systems Frank Amend, was quoted in a statement.


Meanwhile, Landskrona Energi chief executive Johan Holmstedt remarked, “As a local power grid owner, it’s really satisfying to witness the installation of this battery storage facility. The cooperation with Axpo, the city of Landskrona and many others involved in such an important project went very smoothly indeed.”


Chairman of the city of Landskrona’s municipal board, Torkild Strandberg, shared that the project could contribute to the energy stability of their region.
