Gamesa has finished the installation and start-up of a lithium battery for the storage of power at the prototype installed by the company in La Muela (Aragon), Spain.
The offgrid system, inaugurated last May, enables power supply to regions without grid access. The lithium battery, with the ability to store 429 kW of power, is incremental to the Gamesa G52 turbine (with a unit capacity of 850 kW), 816 photovoltaic modules (245 kWp) and three 222-kW diesel generators (666 kW). The prototype also includes control software custom-developed by Gamesa to facilitate integration of the four technologies.
