Monsson links Romania's biggest battery storage to the grid

Green Forum
Monsson has inaugurated the largest electric energy storage capacity in batteries in Romania. This capacity is part of the first hybrid photovoltaic-wind-battery project installed within the Mireasa Wind Farm, with a capacity of 50 MW, located in Constanța County, and was recently inaugurated during a special event of Romania's renewable energy market.

The event brought together representatives from authorities, the business environment, as well as specialists in the field. Among those who participated in the event and conveyed messages supporting the installation of such battery capacity were: Alexandra Bocșe - State Counselor at the Presidential Administration, Alina Jalea - State Counselor at the Prime Minister's Chancellery, Mihai Lupu - President of the Constanța County Council, Mihai Soare - Mayor of Siliștea Commune, Gabriel Andronache - Vice President of ANRE, Virgiliu Ivan - Director of UNO-DEN at Transelectrica, Therese Hyden - Ambassador of Sweden to Romania, Răzvan Nicolescu - member of the European Institute for Innovation and Technology board, and Corina Popescu - Senior Specialist in Energy.

The storage unit put into operation has an installed capacity of 24 MWh - (6MWx4h), is built in Constanța County by Monsson, through a unique project, pending patenting, and uses domestically produced batteries, manufactured by the Romanian company Prime Batteries Technology.

This first phase is just one of the three stages that will constitute a total storage capacity of 216 MWh to be commissioned over the years 2024 and 2025.

The storage unit will be charged with energy produced by the existing 50MW Mireasa Wind Farm, with photovoltaic energy produced by the 35MW Gălbiori 2 photovoltaic park under construction and to be connected to the grid in 2024, as well as from the national grid when there is no wind or sunlight. The hybrid project is fully automated remotely, without local operational personnel, and will operate in an integrated system through proprietary software developed by Monsson.
