TotalEnergies commissions energy storage facility in France

22 Dec 2021

TotalEnergies has commissioned a 61MW/61MWh battery energy storage system (BESS) at its Flandres Centre in Dunkirk, France.

The project is claimed to be the largest battery-based energy storage site in France and will help in responding to the need for stabilising the grid.

The BESS includes 27 containers, each with a capacity of 2.5MWh. The containers were designed and constructed by Saft, the battery subsidiary of TotalEnergies.

The project, according to the company, is being built to ensure a stable supply of power in the national grid, especially during peak winter periods.

Furthermore, the BESS supports renewable energy production by allowing more green electricity to be incorporated into the grid.

According to TotalEnergies, the full commissioning of the BESS follows the start-up of a first unit of 25MW capacity earlier this year.
