We look forward to a deep collaboration with esVolta to ensure the highest availability and extend the longevity of their diverse fleet of BESS assets.”

Randolph Mann, founder and chief executive officer of esVolta, said: “CAMS’ proven approach to operation and maintenance adds value to our assets safely and reliably. We are excited to work alongside their trusted team.”
