Tesla Megapack will be installed at the 4 MW/8 MWh energy storage project of the Dunamenti Power Plant in Hungary. The battery will be able to maintain the power supply for 2 hours.
Tesla will deploy an 8MW capacity Megapack in Hungary. Project will start in summer of 2022. @tesla— Krisztián Koós (@kooskrisztian) December 22, 2021
“The contracted investment project will be one of the key elements of our R&D project launched in April,” said Dunamenti Power Plant CEO, Péter Horváth. “The future is carbon-free, meaning even the gas-fired power plants providing network flexibility have to be carbon-free as much as possible. The experimental project, based on energy storage, will be a prototype for industrial-quantity applications.”
Tesla is the market leader in energy storage equipment and its Megapack solution is ideal for this purpose. The new project will be the first in Hungary to use the innovative energy solution from Tesla. The Dunamenti Power Plant will have a maximum performance of 4 megawatts and a storage capacity of 8 megawatts. The project with Megapacks is designed for two hours of work, which is significantly higher than the previous development, which could provide only half and one hour storage periods. Thus, Megapack provides an opportunity for more efficient system integration of renewable energy producers.
