December 1 (Renewables Now) - Finnish technology group Wartsila Corp (HEL:WRT1V) said that it has picked up an order to supply an 8-MW/32-MWh energy storage system to Chilean power utility Colbun SA for a solar-plus-storage project in the Atacama region of Chile.
Colbun will co-locate the storage system with its 230-MWp Diego de Almagro Sur solar PV plant it is currently building in the Atacama desert.
For Wartsila, the order represents its first energy storage project in South America, it said. The company will supply its fully integrated, modular and compact energy storage system GridSolv Quantum, and the energy management system GEMS Digital Energy Platform on an engineering and equipment delivery (EEQ) basis.
The storage system is expected to go online in the fourth quarter of 2022.
