Bielefeld-based Gildemeister received orders worth €29.2 million for renewable energy production and storage projects in Europe in December 2012.
In the field of energy storage technology, Gildemeister will supply a vanadium redox flow battery for the SmartRegion Pellworm project of the energy supplier Eon. With a capacity of 1.6 MWh, the CellCube stores energy from wind power and solar installations. The renewable energy is fed, according to consumption, into the regional electricity grid and ensures a self-sufficient base load supply for the third largest island in the Schleswig Holstein Wattenmeer national park.
The solar projects include a 6.5 MW solar farm in Italy and an 8 MW solar park, Romania’s first. A second project will be set up west of the capital.
