Fotowatio Renewable Ventures (FRV) has unveiled its second utility-scale battery project with Harmony Energy, having closed funding and construction contracts. The duo are collaborating on the 34MW/68MWh Contego project, which is made up of a system of 28 Tesla Megapack lithium-ion batteries and uses Tesla’s Autobidder AI software for real-time trading and control. Work on the project is set to start in November, near Burgess Hill in West Sussex, with the site expected to be completed in 2021, making the project one of the largest battery energy storage plants in the UK. This is the duo’s second collaboration, after having successfully deployed Holes Bay battery project, as part of a strategic energy storage pipeline that is set to be launched globally.
