ROLLS-ROYCE AND ABO WIND COMMISSION BATTERY STORAGE SYSTEM IN GERMANY
Rolls-Royce and the project development company Abo Wind commissioned a large-scale mtu battery storage system at a solar farm in Bavaria in Germany at the end of May 2023. The plant can produce a total of 10,000 megawatt-hours of green electricity per year, which is equivalent to the demand of around 3,000 three-person households and the avoidance of around 6,300 tons of CO2.
The two companies are already working together successfully on three other projects of this type in the German states Rhineland-Palatinate and Hesse.
The business unit Power Systems of Rolls-Royce has supplied a mtu EnergyPack QG large-scale battery storage system with a capacity of 5.8 megawatt hours and an output of 2.9 megawatts for the latest Abo Wind solar farm in Bavaria. The large-scale storage solution can be flexibly adapted to project-specific outputs and capacities thanks to its modular design and high energy density.
ABO Wind, based in Germany, successfully develops and constructs wind and solar parks as well as battery and hydrogen projects.
