Indiana-based energy equipment and solution provider Go Electric Inc. has won a $1.7 million contact to supply a 1MW/1MWh lithium-ion grid-tied battery energy storage system (BESS) to a military depot in Tooele, Utah.
The contract is awarded by Perini Management Services, Inc. (PMSI), designing and constructing management services to US military, will interconnect Go Electric’s BESS to the Tooele Army Depot’s (TEAD) existing 46kV line, its self-sufficient microgrid, which providing the TEAD with energy security and resiliency.
Go Electric’s BESS consists of a 1MW lithium-ion battery and its patented AutoLYNC® microgrid controller, allowing TEAD to manage and optimise multiple AC and DC distributed energy resources, the company says.
The battery solution aims to provide TEAD with peak-shaving and black start capabilities, reactive and uninterruptible power supply, and utility voltage and frequency support.
“This is Go Electric’s second major military microgrid project, and projects like these are critical to advancing and validating our technology and project performance in the defense sector,” said Tony Soverns, CTO of Go Electric.
“We are delighted to be part of these efforts to provide energy security and resiliency to critical military facilities and support our American Service Members,” he added.
