Monsoon, Prime Energize 24-MWh Battery at Romanian Renewable Energy Site

Romania’s Prime Batteries Technology and its partner Monsson have brought online what they say is the biggest battery energy storage system (BESS) in Romania, a facility with a capacity of 24 MWh.

The system was put into operation as part of a larger project that will create a complex of three battery units co-located with a photovoltaic (PV) park within the Mireasa wind farm.

The BESS complex will have three stages totalling 216 MWh that will be fully commissioned by 2025, sustainable energy investor InnoEnergy, which is among Prime Batteries’ backers, said on Friday.

The first-stage BESS in Constanta County uses Prime Batteries’ technology and will consist of 132 battery strings with 114,048 lithium-ion cells. The unit will store electricity from the Mireasa wind park and the 35-MW under-construction Galbiori 2 PV plant that should go online this year. Power from the national grid could also be stored when no wind and solar generation are available.

The project will create the first hybrid solar-wind-battery complex in Romania. When the entire battery capacity is installed, the site will be the largest of its kind in Europe, according to the statement.
