Hydrogen-Aeolic Energy with Optimised eLectrolysers Upstream of Substation

Haeolus Demonstration Started

The Haeolus project is very excited to announce that finally, on the 15th of June 2021, KES, in collaboration with Hydrogenics and Varanger Kraft, started the first of a suite of tests developed by Tecnalia for the energy-storage control strategy. With this, the 2.5 year long demonstration phase is officially started, after several delays due to the Covid-19 pandemic and other factors. The tests were run from Benevento in Italy to demonstrate remote operation, which is a key feature of Haeolus.

The plant in Berlevåg is remotely controlled from Benevento, on the other side of the continent.
