  • UK infrastructure projects developer ForePower selected Edina to deliver a 10MW battery energy storage system (BESS) project for its engineered, system-integrated turnkey solution.
  • Edina to deliver the EPC project for LFP liquid-cooled 10MW grid-scale BESS solution.

Manchester, 6th September 2022 – Edina, an on-site power generation solutions provider for hydrogen-ready Combined Heat and Power (CHP) plants, standby power generation, and recently battery energy storage systems (BESS), has won its first contract with UK developer ForePower for its system-integrated BESS solution.

ForePower provides National Grid with the ability to stabilise the electricity network with its portfolio of assets. Funded by Nash Business Capital Ltd, the 10MW 1-hour duration BESS project in South Yorkshire, UK, will provide a range of balancing services to the electricity grid to ensure power security, system flexibility and accelerate renewable energy integration.

Edina’s modular outdoor battery energy storage solution is fully integrated and prefabricated with lithium iron phosphate (LFP) battery cell chemistry, liquid-cooled thermal management system, skid-mounted inverter systems, battery management system and UL certified fire detection and suppression systems.

Edina will provide the full engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) and system integration scope of work to included detailed design, engineering, project management and installation, plant commissioning and discussions are underway to undertake long-term plant maintenance.

Hugh Richmond, Edina CEO, said: “It’s our first battery storage development with ForePower, and we are delighted to be working with such an enthusiastic and forward-thinking company. This project is a significant milestone for the evolution and growth of Edina, who was traditionally a gas engine supplier and developer but has now added another “string to their bow” by developing standalone and hybrid power solutions and full EPC contracts.”

Andrew Foreman, ForePower’s Founder and Projects Director, Steven Thorpe have jointly said “It’s an exciting time for the UKs energy mix and it is a great the opportunity to work with Edina. We look forward to working with Edina on this project to help build our relationship and build out our current portfolio of assets.”

The project is scheduled for operation in early 2023 and will allow ForePower to access the Capacity Market, Fast Frequency Response, and other grid services markets.
