November 5 (Renewables Now) - US developer Pine Gate Renewables will install a 0.125MW/0.5-MWh stand-alone battery energy storage system (BESS) in Logan, Utah, it announced this week after securing the project in a competitive process.

The company said that it has won a bid with municipal utility Logan City Light & Power (LL&P) to build the Utah state's first stand-alone BESS to provide back-up energy for the grid.

The project will use the Eos Znyth Gen 2.3 battery - a high-performance zinc hybrid battery - and Nikola Power’s Intellect Plus Energy Management System (EMS), Pine Gate Renewables said.

According to the developer, the USA-made Eos system uses non-toxic batteries, has a 20-year lifespan and is fully recyclable at the end of its use.

Blue Ridge Power will be handling the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) side of the project. The BESS is expected to be online by late 2022.
