On the 16th of December, the City of Arnhem, DNV-GL and WV Nederland were in Hengelo to perform the Fabrication Acceptance Test of the purchased 500 kWh Li Fe PO4 battery. The test was successful, so the battery will be shipped to Arnhem in January 2020 to be installed at the Dutch CME pilot site.
Through a European tender process, SuperB in Hengelo, Netherlands was selected to deliver the 500 kWh storage for the Arnhem City Pilot. In this pilot, the storage will be linked directly to the transformer WV NLD has realised to connect the shore-to-ship power, or cold ironing, to the grid (2 MVA connection). Later, when the solar field is realised, renewable energy of this field will be stored in this battery. Stored energy will be utilised throughout the day to supply power to charging of cars or for medium-sized ships.
