Kortmann Art Packers & Shippers and Ben Oostdam from Zonnigdak joined hands to expand on Kortmann’s journey te energy efficiency. Their partnership gave rise to the use of an innovative energy storage system, commonly referred to as a BESS (Battery Energy Storage System). Kortmann is poised for change, and excited to contribute to the way we capture and make use of renewable energy.
At the heart of this advanced BESS system is an extensive solar panel field of 5,000 panels that tirelessly work to capture the sun’s energy during the day. But the real magic lies in what happens next: the system stores this surplus solar energy, ensuring no precious sunbeam goes to waste.
During the night, the stored energy springs into action, regulating the facility’s temperature and charging electric vehicles. It’s a game-changer for sustainable energy use. Yet, the benefits don’t stop there; any excess electricity can be fed back into the grid at a favorable rate, making a valuable contribution to the broader ecosystem of sustainable energy.
Let’s delve deeper into the specifications of this remarkable system:
1. Size: The BESS is roughly the size of a large shipping container, compact and efficient.
2. Storage Capacity: With a substantial storage capacity of 2 MWh (megawatt-hours), it’s equivalent to the energy capacity of 400 small home batteries.
3. Power Capacity: With 1 MW (megawatt) of power capacity, this system is a formidable player in the realm of sustainable energy storage.
This investment is a huge step forward in Kortmann’s pursuit of sustainability and the overarching goal of reducing environmental impact. The company is exceptionally proud to lead the way towards a more eco-friendly future and hopes to inspire others to do the same.
