Kiwi Power recently commissioned the final 5MW of battery storage at South Somerset District Council’s (SSDC) ground-breaking site at Fideoak Mill in Taunton, Devon, UK. The additional £2.5m investment brings the site’s total capacity to 30MW, the UK’s largest council-owned battery storage site. Kiwi Power’s proprietary hardware, Fruit, was installed on all 22 battery units so that the site can provide grid balancing services to National Grid. Kiwi Power commissioned the first 25MW of the project in just four days. The final phase of the project – a further 5MW in capacity – has now also been commissioned. In total, 67 Fruit systems are synchronised together so that the site can participate in any of the UK’s 15 flexibility markets.
