Power Watch India - - DESPATCHES FINANCE -

ABB has won an or­der worth around $20 mil­lion from Dubai Elec­tric­ity and Wa­ter Au­thor­ity (DEWA), to ex­tend a sub­sta­tion that will in­te­grate more so­lar energy into the grid, help­ing di­ver­sify Dubai’s energy mix to meet the grow­ing de­mand. DEWA is dou­bling the net out­put ca­pac­ity of Phase II of the Mo­hammed bin Rashid Al Mak­toum so­lar park from 100 MW to 200 MW. The com­pany had pre­vi­ously won a sub­sta­tion or­der in 2014 to in­te­grate 100 MW from the park into the grid. This util­ity scale so­lar pho­to­voltaic plant, which cov­ers 4.5 square kilo­me­tres, will pro­duce enough elec­tric­ity to power more than 30,000 homes serv­ing 130,000 peo­ple. Toshiba Group mem­ber and world leader in smart me­ter­ing, Lan­dis+Gyr has won a ma­jor or­der to sup­ply a megawatt-class bat­tery energy stor­age sys­tem (BESS) to He­len Ltd., a ma­jor energy util­ity op­er­at­ing in the cap­i­tal of Fin­land. The BESS, the first in any Nordic coun­try, is set to start op­er­a­tion in Helsinki in spring 2016. Lan­dis+Gyr will sup­ply a 1.2-0.6 MWh SCiB™ lithi­u­mion BESS for in­stal­la­tion on a site next to the Suvi­lahti so­lar power plant, Fin­land’s largest, built as a part of a smart com­mu­nity pro­ject that He­len is de­vel­op­ing in Helsinki’s Kalasa­tama dis­trict.
