Grid reinforcement with the Battery Box at a gas station in Bemmel
More and more often we see that grid congestion gets in the way of reinforcing a grid connection. We faced the same problem at a recently renovated gas station in Bemmel, the Netherlands.
Switching on heating equipment and ovens, in addition to the continuously running equipment such as cooling cells, asks a lot of power in a short amount of time. If the grid connection is insufficient, this can cause the main fuse to overload or even burn out, which, of course, is undesirable. There was really only one option: reinforcing the existing grid connection. However, since nowadays the grid is often already at capacity, this isn’t always an option.
The gas station’s shop was renovated, in part by us, and asks more power during peak moments than the current grid connection can handle. Bredenoord’s Battery Box is a great emission free solution until the grid connection can be enlarged!
“To ensure optimal operation for the shop of this recently renovated gas station we chose the Battery Box 90. This aligns with the client’s request for an emission free and quiet solution,” says Wim Lucas, Area Manager South-East Netherlands at Bredenoord. “When, during peak moments, more power is required than the grid connection can provide, the battery will handle that. We call this peakshaving. And when the power usage is lower than what the grid connection can provide, the battery will then recharge.”
Grid reinfocement is not always possible due to grid congestion
