Pushing The Renewables Boundary

1 Dec , 2017  

Nidec Industrial Solutions (NIS) and Corsica Sole, Project Developer and Independent Power Producer (IPP), have signed a Memorandum of Understanding for the turn-key construction and maintenance of four photovoltaic projects with battery storage which are part of the 13 MWp pipeline project won by Corsica Sole awarded under the French CRE ZNI tender.

NIS and Corsica Sole have recently finalized and signed an EPC contract, related to one of these projects, with a capacity of 4.78MWp photovoltaic (PV) and 7.5MWh Battery Energy Stoarge Station (BESS), located near Bastia, one of the biggest electricity consumption centres in Corsica. “This project, and those to come next, demonstrate that it is already technologically possible, economically feasible and socially beneficial today to achieve a 100% renewable energy mix,” says Michael Coudyser, CEO of Corsica Sole.

Nidec Industrial Solutions is currently the world’s leading supplier of PV, battery energy storage and smart microgrids with an installed base in BESS of more than 430 MWh already in operation and another 59 MWh expected to come online later this year.
