The Tooele depot inaugurated wind and solar generation projects in 2012.

Energy storage manufacturer Go Electric has won a contract worth US$1.7 million to provide a 1MW/1MWh battery storage system for the US Army.

The company’s battery energy storage system (BESS) will be installed as part of a microgrid facility at the Tooele Army Depot in Utah.

The BESS includes 1MW lithium-ion battery and the company’s own AutoLYNC microgrid controller enabling management of AC and DC energy resources across the microgrid.

The system is capable of black-start, peak-shaving and utility voltage and frequency support. Specialist government project construction contractor Perini Management Services, Inc. (PMSI) will carry out the build with Go Electric providing design and engineering support during the install.

“This is Go Electric’s second major military microgrid project, and projects like these are critical to advancing and validating our technology and project performance in the defence sector,” said Tony Soverns, CTO, Go Electric. “We are delighted to be part of these efforts to provide energy security and resiliency to critical military facilities and support our American Service Members,” he added.

The Tooele munitions depot installed solar and wind generation in 2012 and will now also be an early mover for stationary battery storage facilties.
