Eurus Energy Europe B.V. (’Eurus Energy’), a group company of Eurus Energy Holdings Corporation, and its contractors have started the construction of the ‘Ariette’ battery project. This battery energy storage system (‘BESS’) is jointly developed and owned by Eurus Energy and Toyota Tsusho Europe SA.

It comprises of a containerised installation, with a capacity of 1 MW and 2.5 MWh. The BESS will be co-located with the Eurus Energy-owned ‘Windpark Mondriaan’. This wind farm has a total installed capacity of 38.7 MW and is located in the province of Groningen, The Netherlands. By sharing a grid connection with the windfarm, the BESS makes optimal use of existing infrastructure. It will be employed to provide various services to grid operators, and to mitigate energy imbalance on the electricity grid.

The system will be taken into operation in the second quarter of 2024.
