Power Boost: Alfen Delivers A Massive 20MW Battery To Supercharge Swedish Wind Farm!


Energizing Renewables: Alfen and Vasa Vind Unite for a Sustainable Swedish Powerhouse

In a groundbreaking partnership destined to reshape Sweden’s renewable energy landscape, Alfen has signed a pivotal agreement with Vasa Vind. This collaboration marks the debut of Alfen’s first battery energy storage system (BESS) co-located at a Swedish wind farm, setting the stage for a greener, more resilient power grid.

By the end of 2024, Alfen will not only design and engineer but also install and commission an impressive 20MW battery energy storage system. This isn’t just any battery; it’s a game-changer that will be connected to one of Vasa Vind’s wind farms, promising a future of sustainable energy. Alfen’s commitment goes beyond installation – they’ll also be providing ongoing service to this powerhouse of a battery.

Once operational, this energy storage system will link up seamlessly with the company’s wind farms in Stromsund. This integration is more than a technical feat; it’s a strategic move to enhance both local and national power grid stability and flexibility. The BESS will play a crucial role in Sweden’s ancillary services market, including Fast Frequency Reserve (FFR), revolutionizing how energy is stored and utilized.

But there’s a unique twist to Alfen’s system – its ability to “black start” the wind farm. In the event of a power outage or grid failure, the wind farm can spring back to life using energy from Alfen’s energy storage system. This capability is not just impressive; it’s a lifeline in critical situations.

Stephanie Schockaert, Commercial Director for Alfen’s Energy Storage Systems business, encapsulates the excitement of this venture: “We’re excited to partner with Vasa Vind to install our first battery energy storage system co-located at a wind farm in Sweden and continue to help our customers meet the growing demand for renewable energy.”

Alfen’s expertise in grid management and its diverse portfolio of solutions are set to empower Vasa Vind and the Swedish ancillary services market. This partnership is more than just a collaboration; it’s a beacon of innovation and sustainability in the heart of Sweden’s renewable energy sector.
