Wärtsilä’s celebrates sixth battery project with EDF Renewables UK and Ireland

Wärtsilä has signed a repeat order with EDF Renewables UK to deliver a grid-scale battery in Bramford. The 57MW / 114MWh project is expected to be delivered in 2024.
This is Wärtsilä’s sixth project with EDF Renewables UK and Ireland. Wärtsilä’s energy storage portfolio in the UK now exceeds 1 GWh.
Wärtsilä’s GEMS digital energy management platform will will be the main controller for the entire battery, interfacing with the grid as well as external traders. Bramford battery will be constructed near a planned solar farm, also being developed by EDF Renewables UK, which is currently awaiting a planning decision from Mid-Suffolk District Council.
In addition to Bramford, Wärtsilä’s existing projects with EDF Renewables include batteries delivered in 2021 in Oxford and Kent, and three additional projects under construction in Birmingham, Coventry and Sundon.
