Honeywell to supply Ukraine’s first grid-scale battery storage system

US equipment manufacturer and engineering solutions company Honeywell has signed a contract to supply what is thought to be the Ukraine’s first large-scale battery energy storage system.

Ukrainian energy sector investment company DTEK announced yesterday that it is executing a pilot project which will see a 1MW / 1.5MWh lithium-ion battery energy storage system (BESS) installed at Zaporizhzhya Power Plant, a thermal power plant site owned by DTEK. The system will provide frequency containment reserves to the grid, as well as doing energy arbitrage- charging at off-peak times and discharging when demand is higher.
