Energy storage platform provider Powin has announced an agreement with energy assets developer Pulse Clean Energy for the deployment of a 50 MW/ 110 MWh battery energy storage system (BESS) on project 'Overhill' located in Scotland, UK. 

The battery storage facility is expected to commence commercial operations by mid of next year. Powin will provide its 'Stack750' energy storage system with integrated 'StackOS' software, while Pulse will oversee asset delivery and manage operations across the project lifecycle, according to the partners. 

"We are deeply honored to be chosen by Pulse as the supplier for their BESS near Aberdeen, Scotland. This selection underscores our unwavering commitment to pioneering clean and sustainable energy solutions," said Anthony Carroll, President of Powin. 

"We are thrilled to collaborate with Pulse in this groundbreaking endeavor, and we look forward to leveraging our expertise to make a lasting impact on the energy system in the UK and beyond", he added. 

The project will provide services to maintain balance within the power grid, enabling more renewables to be connected securely to the UK energy system, according to the developers.

Aazzum Yassir, Director of Technology & Operations at Pulse, "After detailed evaluation, Pulse determined that Powin's capabilities and technology stack placed them as one of the leading players in the BESS market. This agreement with Powin underscores our shared commitment to innovation and the pursuit of a cleaner, more affordable and secure energy system".

We believe in a more affordable, sustainable, and secure future – enabled by partnerships which deliver solutions that will reduce system costs, decrease emissions, and improve grid resiliency", commented Trevor Wills, CEO of Pulse.

In less than 2 years, Pulse claims to have delivered over 100 MWh of BESS into operation, broken ground on 500 MWh that is currently in construction, and established a sizeable project pipeline.

The developer is backed by Investment Management Corporation of Ontario (IMCO), a Canadian institutional investor with $73 billion of assets under management.
