MYTILINEOS S.A. (MYTILINEOS), through its Renewables and Storage Development (RSD) Business Unit, has announced that the energisation of the Byers Brae Project in Scotland has been successfully completed, according to the initial schedule, despite COVID-19 restrictions. The construction period was four months (October 2020 until the end of January 2021).
This specific project is a 30 MW battery energy storage system (BESS) providing approximately 30 MWh to the grid, in contract with Gresham House. This is the 3rd BESS project that the RSD Business Unit has completed in the last semester, and it validates the long-term co-operation with Gresham House, preceded by the successful energisation at the end of 2020 by the Wickham BESS project (50 MW/74 MWh) and the Thurcroft BESS project (50 MW/75 MWh). Wickham and Thurcroft are some of the bigger BESS projects in Gresham House’s portfolio.
Storage projects are an integral part towards the successful energy transition and a key parameter for the transition to low CO2 emissions while they support the increased penetration and the optimisation of the operation of RES projects.
MYTILINEOS, with the extensive experience in the development and construction of battery energy storage projects, intends to pioneer in Greek and international markets.
