NHOA Energy to supply 39MWh Italian battery

October 24, 2023

NHOA Energy has been selected as turnkey supplier for a 39MWh battery energy storage system in central Italy.

The project was a winner in the 2024 Capacity Market auction run by Terna, the Italian transmission system operator.

Located in central Italy, the system will be positioned within the perimeter of the existing combined cycle gas plant, enabling the connection of the battery storage system with the existing power plant, thus fully integrating into the plant’s control architecture while, at the same time, ensuring optimal performance and reliability.

The construction phase is expected to start by the end of 2023 while commercial operation is expected by December 2024.

Fabrizio Ciaccia, vice president EMEA of NHOA Energy, said: “This award, in the context of the 2024 Capacity Market auctions, is an important signal and opens the doors for the future projects that Italy will need to put in view of the EU 2030 decarbonization objectives. At NHOA Energy, our vision aligns with creating a more sustainable future and doing so partnering with esteemed energy players and with the help of Terna amplifies our mission, allowing us to collaborate and innovate, redefining the landscape of renewable energy solutions for generations to come.“
