Schwungrad and EirGrid conclude successful Demonstration Project
Schwungrad Energie is delighted to announce that the Demonstration Project undertaken in conjunction with EirGrid has successfully concluded following more than a year of testing. The Hybrid Flywheel Battery facility will continue to operate as a pilot, further expanding the knowledge and experience of the company.
Schwungrad and EirGrid have published a joint report on the project in which EirGrid, as the Transmission System Operator, has validated the capability of the Flywheel, the Battery and the combination of the two technologies as a Hybrid Flywheel Battery, to provide several DS3 System Service products, namely Fast Frequency Response (FFR), Primary Operating Reserve (POR), Secondary Operating Reserve (SOR) and Tertiary Operating Reserve 1 (TOR1).
Schwungrad is greatly appreciative of the support provided by EirGrid throughout the Demonstration Project, and is hopeful that the learnings and insights gained by EirGrid can be implemented as part of the solution to assist the integration of additional renewable power generators on the Irish power system.
