Ampd Energy successfully deploys battery energy storage system
By Catrin Jones01 February 2023
Ampd Energy has announced that their flagship product, the zero emission ‘Enertainer’ lithium-ion battery energy storage system, has launched in the UK and has been deployed to London’s Olympia Redevelopment.
In partnership with Laing O’Rourke, principal contractor for the Olympia Redevelopment, and subsidiary Select, the ‘Enertainer’ has powered three cranes at the construction project in the six weeks since its deployment in December.
The company says that the ‘Enertainer’ is a plug-and-play device designed for the electrification of construction. Providing clean, quiet and fully automated energy delivery, it enables construction to transition away from fossil fuels. Thirty times quieter than a diesel generator, the Enertainer is designed for the tough, dynamic and space-constrained needs of construction sites.
Compared to fossil fuel generators, Ampd Energy says that the Enertainer reduces carbon footprints by up to 90%, is significantly quieter, emits zero air pollutants, and eliminates diesel handling and usage risks.
The company adds that the Enertainer has the potential to realise significant cost-savings as well as operational benefits for construction sites in the UK and on a global scale.
The Enertainer is reported to be the first energy storage system in the UK able to power such large construction equipment which will be crucial as the construction sector looks to reduce its environmental impact.
