The project, which will store up to 80 MWh of energy, is the first to be installed in the Aliso Canyon, in response to the region’s gas shortage. The system uses Greensmiths GEMS5 software platform with additional grid operations.
“With over 50 system deliveries in the last five years, Greensmith has worked not only to advance technology, but accelerate time-to-market for grid-scale energy storage systems, with a 100% safety record,” says President & CEO of Greensmith John Jung. “Aliso Canyon was a particularly exciting opportunity as it demonstrated our ability to deliver the world’s largest and most complex energy storage systems safely and reliably.”
The system is one of three storage facilities that were commissioned following the closure of the Aliso Canyon Natural Gas Facility in January 2016. “This project had a very tight construction and delivery time frame given the size of the project,” says Greensmith COO/CFO Jim Murphy. “Our system wide expertise and deep integration experience was paramount to the successful delivery of this installation.”
