Statoil Plans to Integrate Battery Storage With Floating Offshore Wind

The Norwegian state-owned oil company Statoil is planning to add a 1-megawatt-hour lithium-ion battery system to a floating offshore wind farm in late 2018. The project, called Batwind, is being developed to capture excess wind power, reduce balancing costs and increase revenues through price arbitrage, according to a Statoil presentation . It will be located alongside what Statoil claims is the world’s first floating wind farm -- the five-turbine, 30-megawatt Hywind plant 25 kilometers off the coast of Peterhead, in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. The project is due to start delivering power to the grid next year. The Batwind battery array will be installed on the coast, where the wind farm’s export cable comes to shore, although Statoil will also be investigating the potential for offshore storage with batteries integrated into turbine towers. “With Batwind, we can optimize the...
