The Bramley project is a joint venture between battery energy storage developer and operator Penso Power and investment platform operator BW ESS and is said to be the first BESS project within a broader pipeline in Bramley. BW ESS is the battery storage subsidiary of maritime company BW Group.

Once live in 2024, the project will support grid balancing, ancillary services and wholesale energy trading.

Sungrow will provide the project with an LFP-powered PowerTitan 2.0 liquid cooled BESS which has a power conversion system and battery integrated into a single 20ft container.

“Sungrow welcomes the opportunity to work with Penso Power and BW ESS on this important energy project for the UK. We previously collaborated with Penso Power on their 100 MW Minety battery energy storage system in 2019 and are proud to supply the new Bramley project – the first of several projects with 260MWh battery storage in the UK,” said James Wu, senior vice president at Sungrow.

“We look forward to collaborating further with Penso Power on their global project pipeline, including Australia and Italy.”

Penso won planning approval for the project, on appeal, in April this year.
