Tilt Renewables and Fluence Energy have entered into a 20-year long-term service agreement for a 100 MW/ 200 MWh battery-based energy storage system in Victoria, Australia called the Latrobe Valley Battery Energy Storage System (BESS).
Under the agreement, the Latrobe Valley BESS will be developed by Tilt Renewables and built, serviced, and maintained by Fluence.
“We are thrilled to work with Tilt Renewables to deliver the Latrobe Valley BESS… [which] marks another important milestone for us in Australia and demonstrates our long-term commitment to the country’s energy transition,” said Jan Teichmann, Fluence Senior Vice President and President, APAC.
The energy storage system will not only use Fluence’s Gridstack grid-scale energy storage product supported by a multi-generational technology platform but also deploy its AI-powered bidding software, Mosaic, and asset performance management software, Nispera, to optimize the market trading and operational performance of the asset.
While Fluence’s first battery-based energy storage system was the 150 MW / 150 MWh Hazelwood battery, the Latrobe Valley BESS ranks second in delivery.
