Wärtsilä receives 57MW UK order from EDF

March 3, 2023

Technology group Wärtsilä has received an order from EDF Renewables UK to deliver a 57 MW / 114 MWh grid-scale energy storage system in Bramford, UK.

The facility will be constructed near a planned solar farm, also being developed by EDF Renewables UK, which is currently awaiting a planning decision from Mid-Suffolk District Council.

The Bramford project will also be capable of supporting any future developments in electric vehicle charging and the electrification of public transport.

In addition to Bramford, Wärtsilä’s existing projects with EDF Renewables include UK energy storage facilities delivered in 2021 in Oxford and Kent, and three additional projects under construction in Birmingham, Coventry and Sundon.
