Gore Street UK battery storage sites get turnkey systems from Nidec


United Kingdom – Gore Street’s Ferrymuir and Stony battery storage sites in the UK will receive turnkey systems and EPC (engineering, procurement, and construction) services from Nidec Group.

While the Stony plant is close to Milton Keynes in England and is connected to the Western Power Distribution network, the Ferrymuir plant is situated in the Scottish county of Fife and is connected to the Scottish Power Distribution network.

Nidec will serve as a supplier for Gore Street as an EPC contractor, following the realization of two systems from the design stage through the construction and testing stage, as well as managing and maintaining the systems over the course of their lifetime. Both sites are expected to be activated in the fourth quarter of 2022, and by February 2023, the plants should be fully operational from a commercial standpoint.
