National Grid connects new green tech in Liverpool
UK, Liverpool: National Grid has connected Statskraft’s new Greener Grid Park at its 275 kV substation to the power transmission network.
The project is to enable an innovative, emission-free way to boost system stability.
The newly energised connection means the specialised synchronous compensators and flywheels at Statkraft’s site are now operational and supplying stability services to help National Grid Electricity System Operator (ESO) manage system frequency.
It follows recent progress from National Grid Electricity Transmission (ET) and National Grid ESO in introducing new measures to reform grid connections in England and Wales, including the launch of a new two-stage offer process.
“It’s great to see projects that will make a real difference in creating a net zero power system come to fruition, so we’re pleased to be able to make it happen by providing a grid connection via our Lister Drive substation., said Mark Brindley, National Grid’s Project Director for northern regions.
