Enersense International has been enlisted to provide maintenance services on four battery storage projects in Lithuania deployed by Fluence.

The Finland-headquartered energy solutions firm announced the award of the contract last week (4 August) for the four projects at substations in Alytus, Vilnius, Utena and Šiauliai. A spokesperson told Energy-Storage.news that Enersense’s contract covers preventive maintenance and fault support.

The projects, which total 200MW/200MWh, have been delivered by global system integrator Fluence for state-owned company EPSO-G and should be coming online imminently if not already – with testing having started in February for a ‘Spring 2023’ commissioning date.

The projects will ensure the instantaneous reserve of isolated working electricity for Lithuania until it is synchronised with continental European networks (KETs), Enersense said.

“We are pleased that Fluence Energy chose us as its partner, and the signed agreement is an important market opening for us in the Lithuanian electricity storage market. An energy self-sufficient Europe needs such projects, and it is great to be a part of this,” says Artūras Lapinskas, the company’s managing director for Lithuania.

The projects are set to begin operation in sequence and will provide ‘Isolated Electric Power System Operating Reserve Service’ to the grid.

Some four-fifths of the €109 million (US$120 million) of investment for the project was covered by EU‘s Recovery and Resilience Facility (RRF) for Lithuania, the bloc’s funding programme to help mitigate the negative economic effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Enersense already provides maintenance services on a 20MW BESS project deployed by Fluence in its home market of Finland.
