Post date: 08/04/2021 - 10:28
Finish technology group Wärtsilä Corporation awarded a contract to supply an engineered equipment delivery (EEQ) of a 40 MW / 80 MWh DC-coupled solar plus storage system to the »Hickory Park Solar« project in Georgia, USA. The owner of the project is RWE Renewables, part of German utility RWE. The Wärtsilä system will enable a subsidiary of RWE Renewables, Hickory Park Solar, LLC, to sell nearly 200 MW of generation from the solar PV panels to Georgia Power Company.
The order was booked by Wärtsilä in Q4 2020. Delivery of the Wärtsilä equipment is scheduled for September 2021, and the plant is expected to commence commercial operations in November of that year. Wärtsilä has previously delivered energy storage solutions to RWE Renewables in Texas and Arizona, USA.
