Parker Hannifin (NYSE: PH), an American energy company, recently announced the completion of the Cochrane energy storage facility, a project undertaken with AES Gener. The partnership with the Chilean energy producer and supplier has resulted in a large plant located Mejillones, Antofagasta, Chile. The facility will provide spinning reserve and grid reliability services to Northern Chile, part of the Norte Grande Interconnected System. This system in particular primarily provides energy to the country’s mining operations, which take place in the north. The facility can provide 20 megawatts of energy storage.
AES is also partnered with Parker Hannifin in the building of an energy storage facility in San Diego, California. The contract with San Diego Gas & Electric includes the installation and commission of two storage arrays, which will help energy reliability and renewable energy grid integration. 75 megawatts of flexible storage capability will be added to the grid when completed. One of the arrays included in this project is in Escondido, supplying 30 MW of the power. When completed, this array will be the largest battery-based storage project in the United States.
