Statera Energy has announced that its newest 100MW battery storage facility, Dollymans Storage in Essex, has entered commercial operations, bringing the company’s total battery operational capacity to 300MW. This is Statera’s fifth operational battery storage facility and was delivered in 11 months from construction commencement with Statera Energy Projects, Statera’s in-house delivery team, acting as Principal Designer and Contractor.
Dollymans Storage benefits from a T-4 Capacity Market contract and provides ancillary services to National Grid, as well as wholesale market trading.
The project has been part funded through an existing £110m debt facility, provided by NatWest and Santander, and now joins the other operational projects as part of that portfolio.
Statkraft, Statera’s strategic partner in bringing 1GW of flexible generation assets to market, will be offtaking the energy.
