Vestas uit Denemarken, de grootste windmolenconstructeur van de wereld, gaat ook samenwerken met Tesla, om met de hulp van hun powerpacks, stabiele baseloadcentrales te maken voor duurzame electriciteit.
Tesla is working with world’s largest wind-turbine maker to deploy batteries at wind farms
Fred Lambert - Sep. 1st 2017
Tesla’s large-scale Powerpack energy storage projects have so far been mostly paired with solar farms, but the technology can also be useful for wind energy when the wind is not blowing.
The massive new 100 MW/129 MWh Powerpack system contract that Tesla won in Australia is the first step in that direction since it will be combined with Neoen’s Hornsdale Wind Farm.
Now the company is going deeper into the industry with a new partnership with Vestas, the world’s largest wind-turbine maker.
Denmark’s Borsen newspaper (Paywall) reported the new partnership today and Vestas responded in a statement (via Bloomberg):
“Across a number of projects, Vestas is working with different energy storage technologies with specialised companies, including Tesla, to explore and test how wind turbines and energy storage can work together in sustainable energy solutions that can lower the cost of energy,”
The company is reportedly ready to start commissioning larger energy storage projects to combine with its wind farms and Tesla is reportedly the supply for some of those new projects.
