MYTILINEOS through its Renewables and Storage Development (RSD) Business Unit is announcing that the energization of the Byers Brae Project in Scotland was successfully completed, according to the initial schedule, despite the covid-19 restrictions environment. The Construction Period was 4 months (Oct 2020 – End January 2021).

This specific project is a 30MW battery energy storage system (BESS) providing approximately 30MWh to the grid, in contract with Gresham House. This is the 3rd BESS project that the RSD Business Unit completes during the last semester, and it validates the successful long-term cooperation with Gresham House, preceded by the successful energization at the end of 2020 by the Wickham BESS project (50MW/74MWh) and the Thurcroft BESS project (50MW/75MWh). Wickham and Thurcroft are ones of the bigger BESS projects in Gresham House’s portfolio.

Storage projects are an integral part towards the successful energy transition and a key parameter for the transition to low CO2 emissions while they support the increased penetration and the optimization of the operation of RES projects.

MYTILINEOS, with the extensive experience in the development and construction of battery energy storage projects, intends to pioneer in Greek and international markets.
