Completed from design to commissioning in just 10 months, the facility has a peak output of 49.99MW and has the potential to provide enough power for over 13,000 UK homes at any moment in time.
The facility is operating under a two-year agreement with National Grid to provide grid-balancing services, with the ability to respond to second-by-second changes in the grid. It also stores power when generation exceeds demand and exports electricity when demand increases.
As part of the electricity infrastructure, Dunamis designed and delivered a 132kV electricity connection for UK Power Networks (UKPN), which owns and maintains the electricity network in London and the South East, and an adjacent 132/33kV substation for Statera Energy, and all associated structural, civil and electrical works.
Utilising its experience and expertise in the delivery of large-scale battery storage infrastructure, Dunamis was able to achieve accelerated time-scales, which included a six-month construction phase, through the use of its in-house design division and in-house construction teams via Fulcrum Group company Maintech Power. Maintech Power has also been awarded the ongoing electrical maintenance contract for the Pelham facility.
