On the basis of the received building permits, ELES started with site preparation in the area of substations Okroglo and Pekre. The first step was the definition of the exact construction area at both sites, which took place in the Okroglo substation on Tuesday, June 18, and in the Pekre substation on Wednesday, 19 June. This is followed by all necessary works for the construction of the battery storage units.
Within the framework of the SINCRO.GRID project, two battery storage units with a capacity of 5 MW will be installed at the existing substations of Okroglo and Pekre. Their main purpose is to increase the flexibility of active power and thus enhance adaptation of the electricity system to modern challenges in operation. You can find out more here.
