Leclanché selected for 13 MW energy storage project in Canada


Hecate Canada Storage II, LLP selected the Swiss energy storage provider for the project, which covers six Ancillary Services agreements with Ontario’s Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO). It will be deployed across several locations near Toronto, with construction slated to start this spring.

While Leclanché will supply the energy storage system, Deltro Energy Inc. has been chosen to procure, design and construct the site facilities’ balance of plant scope and high voltage connections to the grid. It will operate the facilities, when complete in the fourth quarter of this year. Greensmith Energy, meanwhile, will provide the necessary energy management system.

"We have asked Leclanché to deliver these storage systems on a turn-key basis and will work closely with them to ensure this project is successfully constructed and fully integrated into the IESO grid," commented Deltro CEO, David Del Mastro.

No details were provided on the energy storage system or contract price, and the relevant parties declined to comment.
