Equinor confirms the construction of its first commercial battery storage asset 💡
This will be the first commercial battery storage asset for Equinor, and the first project realized from the strategic partnership between Equinor and Noriker Power.
Equinor acquired a 45% ownership share in Noriker Power Ltd in December 2021. In addition to the equity investment, Equinor and Noriker have a strategic cooperation framework that grants Equinor the opportunity to directly participate in projects developed by Noriker. Blandford Road is the first project from Noriker’s pipeline that has been matured to an investment decision.
The Blandford Road project is a 25 MW / 50 MWh battery storage asset located in Dorset in southern England. The project will incorporate CATL lithium-ion battery racks and connect to the SSE distribution network providing capability to manage power intermittency, balance supply and demand and deliver grid services to SSE and National Grid.
The project will start construction in January 2023 and is expected to be operational in Q3 of the same year.
