Global energy storage group NHOA, formerly Engie EPS, has been awarded a 30MWh battery energy storage system (BESS) to be developed in Peru.

Engie Energía Perú will install the BESS at the site of the 800MW Chilca thermal power plant in Peru, where it will deliver primary frequency regulation services for the country’s grid.

The contract win marks the latest success for NHOA after doubling its storage revenues in 2021 and securing two large deals in Australia and Taiwan, totaling 200MWh and 420MWh respectively.

Luca Roccia, vice president Americas at NHOA, said: “Our engineers designed an optimized energy storage system that meets the required performance while minimizing footprint and cost, and this has been the key to our new achievement, that strengthens NHOA’s role in the Americas.”

The Chilca project has been developed by NHOA Energy utilising teams at its engineering centre in Italy and in the Americas.

Last February, NHOA expanded its activities in the US market with a 10MWh BESS in Massachusetts and two more contracted by Kearsarge Energy.
