Varco has two projects in the partnership – Native River, a 57MW/138MWh transmission-connected BESS south of Liverpool, and the Sizing John project, a 57MW/138MWh transmission-connected BESS south of St Helen.
Arenko will be providing project commercialisation. Varco has previously said Fluence Energy will be providing the BESS for Sizing John.
Richard Whitmore, Director of Varco Energy, said it will work with Arenko to optimise its first two projects using algorithmic software.
Varco has 274MWh of BESS projects under construction.
