Wärtsilä to build ESS for Singapore’s EMA

06 November 2017

The technology group Wärtsilä announced that CW Group has awarded it the provision of a 2.4 MW/2.4MWh energy storage system (ESS) test bed for Singapore’s Energy Market Authority (EMA) and SP Group. CW Group has been contracted by EMA and SP Group to implement this project.

The Wärtsilä solution will incorporate GEMS software from Greensmith Energy, a Wärtsilä company. This test bed will be Singapore’s first utility-scale ESS, and the first such project in Asia for Wärtsilä / Greensmith. The plant is expected to be fully operational during the later part of 2018.
