Statkraft has awarded its supplier contract for Lister Drive Greener Grid Park, which will help decarbonize the UK's energy sector by seeing that the electricity grid can better accept renewable energy and by providing a low-emission alternative to regulation via conventional generators, the Norwegian state-owned utility informs in a statement.
Swedish-Swiss industrial manufacturer ABB is set to construct and install two synchronous condensers at the facility in Liverpool. According to Statkraft, this is a new application of the technology, which has previously been used to maintain voltage on long transmission lines. Here, the purpose isn't to convert electrical to mechanical energy or vice versa, but to adjust the conditions on the transmission grid.
