Opis Renewables has agreed a partnership with an â€œinternational battery OEM with utility-scale storage projects in the USâ€, according to a statement from the company.
Under the terms of the deal, Opis is sending a team of battery specialists to support a 200 MW, utility-scale battery storage project in Texas.
In addition to sending its team, Opis will partner with the parent company to â€œtrain employees on site for ongoing operation and maintenance needsâ€, the statement added.
Robert Edinger, CEO of Opis Renewables, said: “This is the second deal with this OEM and our team is committed to delivering the highest level of expertise and support for the success of this BESS project. We are acutely aware of the shortage of qualified and trained wind, solar and storage technicians in the US and Opis is working hard to fill the labor shortage gap within the renewables industry.”
