February 8 (Renewables Now) - Finnish technology group Wartsila Corp (HEL:WRT1V) has won a contract to supply a 10-MW energy storage system for the 50-MW Coromuel wind farm in La Paz, Mexico.
Specifically, Wartsila will supply a GridSolv Max energy storage solution tied to the GEMS smart energy management system to control the wind farm’s ramp rate and provide frequency control.
While the company announced the order today, it was placed in November 2020, it noted. The contract also covers maintenance, spare parts, repairs, remote monitoring and performance guarantees in the long term.
The wind park in question is owned by San Diego-based Eurus Energy America Corporation, which in turn is controlled by Japanese trader Toyota Tsusho Corporation (TYO:8015).
