Nexif Energy has announced the signing of an agreement with Fluence, a Siemens and AES company, to deliver a 10MW battery-based energy storage system at its 212MW Lincoln Gap Wind Farm (LGWF), located near Port Augusta in South Australia.
The LGWF project’s energy storage system will reliably integrate the wind farm’s output into Australia’s National Energy Market (NEM). The new Lincoln Gap Wind Farm will utilise Fluence’s industrial-grade Advancion energy storage platform to provide improved Fast Frequency Response (FFR) capabilities, helping the project to meet new interconnection requirements for renewable generation projects in South Australia. Furthermore, the LGWF will be able to deliver critical flexibility—in the form of Frequency Control Ancillary Services (FCAS)—directly into the NEM. The energy storage system is targeted for completion by May 2019.
