Centrica celebrates completion of 49MW battery project in England

Centrica has formally announced the completion of its 49MW Roosecote battery storage project, 18 months after construction started.

The energy major said construction of the project, one of Europe’s largest battery storage facilities, started in March 2017 and had now been fully unwrapped, just in time for Christmas.

The 49MW project is able to provide sub-second respond to fluctuations in demand and was among the 500MW of battery storage projects to have received a 15-year Capacity Market contract in December 2016 for the 2020/21 winter period.

Mark Futyan, distributed power systems director at Centrica Business Solutions, said: “The Roosecote site is truly unique, having been home to the latest technology of its time and is an exemplar of the transition we’ve made from dirty coal to cleaner, more flexible power. Christmas has indeed come early for our team!”

The site in Cumbria used to be home to a coal-fired power station that was later replaced by the country’s first combined cycle gas turbine.
