Alfen supplies energy storage system to Eneco in Belgium

13/07/2018

The innovative battery is located at Peleman Industries and increases local consumption of wind energy while keeping central power grid in balance

At Peleman Industries in Puurs, Belgium, the first large-scale storage system in Belgium has been installed on an industrial site that contributes to balancing the central power grid. Sustainable energy provider Eneco installed Alfen's energy storage system, named TheBattery, to prevent what happened some months ago, when digital clocks were behind and not displaying the correct time. The battery storage system also enables Peleman Industries to locally use its own generated energy from wind turbines as much as possible.

Eneco installed the energy storage system on the site of Peleman Industries, developer of presentation systems, where also two wind turbines are located. Alfen, specialist in energy solutions for the future, delivered the storage system with a capacity of 2MW/2MWh, enough to provide 200 families with electricity for a day.
