Independent battery energy storage system (BESS) asset manager Still Waters Green Technology (SWGT) has acquired Swindon Borough Council’s 30MW Mannington project. The site will now be developed jointly by council owned Public Power Solutions (PPS) and SWGT, and will see 25-container all-in-one Lithium Ion BESS integrated solutions installed. PPS first gained planning consent for the subsidy-free energy storage project that is set to provide 65GWh of annual import and export capacity to the national grid in 2018. The Mannington BESS will play a key role in helping Swindon become carbon neutral, supporting renewable integration and grid stability by helping to provide flexibility to Scottish and Southern Electricity Network through participation in the capacity, frequency response and grid balancing programmes.
