Japan’s Mitsubishi Electric has won a contract from global engineering company Chiyoda Corporation for its BLEnDer RE energy storage system.
The energy storage system, along with power conditioners (PCS), will be installed at Kita-Toyotomi substation in Hokkaido, Japan.
The substation is owned by North Hokkaido Wind Energy Transmission company.
Claimed to be the largest in the world, the energy storage system will have a maximum output of nearly 240MW and 720MWh storage capacity. It is expected to become operational by March 2023.
