GIGA STORAGE IS DEVELOPING EUROPE’S LARGEST ENERGY STORAGE PROJECT IN BELGIUM

GIGA Storage announces that it will develop a 600 MW energy storage project with a total capacity of 2,400 MWh, called Green Turtle, in Dilsen-Stokkem, Belgium.
This groundbreaking project, strategically placed next to a new 380kV high-voltage substation from Elia, will play a key role in the energy transition within Belgium and Europe.

This initiative will make a significant contribution to the energy grid by providing stored renewable energy during times of low solar and wind production, reducing dependence on coal and gas-fired power stations.

The new battery park will have a storage capacity of 2.400 MWh. This means that the average energy consumption of 330.000 families can be stored here each day and fed back into the electricity grid. In this way we contribute to the energy transition, the further development of a reliable energy network and affordable energy for everyone. The chosen location is located on the high-voltage line from Van Eyck to Gramme and is connected to the Dutch grid.

Ruud Nijs, CEO of GIGA Storage:
“With these types of large energy storage projects, we contribute to energy security, during but also after the energy transition from fossil to renewable. By developing large-scale energy storage at strategic locations, energy prices will become more stable and we will become less dependent on the import of (fossil) energy. Although this project will be the largest battery in Europe, much more storage capacity will be needed in the coming years. GIGA Storage wants to continue to play an important role in this with its ambition of 5 GW of installed capacity by 2030. In the Netherlands, for example, work is being done on a large battery in Delfzijl and GIGA expects to be able to carry out several more such projects in various European countries in the coming years. to announce.”

Joeri Siborgs, General Manager GIGA Storage Belgium:
“This project is being developed on an industrial site where there had already been an initiative to develop a battery. The permit application has been submitted and we expect to be able to start actual construction in 2024. GIGA Storage aims to realize 3 GW of battery storage in Belgium by 2030.”

About GIGA Storage Belgium
GIGA Storage Belgium is an energy company that develops and deploys large-scale energy storage projects within the Belgian energy network. GIGA Storage believes that large-scale energy storage of energy from renewable energy sources provides an answer to switching off fossil fuels without endangering energy supplies. We think we can facilitate the nuclear phase-out in 2025 and have the ambition to realize 3 GW of battery storage in Belgium before 2030.

About GIGA Storage
GIGA Storage realizes large-scale energy storage. Investments are being made in projects for both optimization of energy supply and grid stability. GIGA Storage aims to become an important player in energy storage in Europe, in order to fully utilize sustainably generated energy. Energy storage is the missing link in the transition to a world powered exclusively by renewable and clean energy.
