Highview Power Breaks Ground on 250MWh CRYOBattery Long Duration Energy Storage Facility

The title of this post, is the same as that of this News page on the Highview web site.

The page shows this picture of diggers doing, what they do.

Note the two towers in the background of the image on the right. They look like the towers of Carrington power station, which are shown on this page on the FK Group web site, who built the 884 MW CCGT power station.

This Google Map shows the site of the power station.

On a larger scale map, you can pick out the towers from their shadows and it looks to me, that Highview’s 250MWh CRYOBattery is being built on the vacant site to the South of the power station.

Consider.

  • The vacant site looks large.
  • I’ve read somewhere that Highview’s CRYOBatteries are expandable by adding more tanks.
  • They certainly have space to add lots of extra tanks and a 884 MW power station on the doorstep to fill them.
  • All the heavy equipment and components to build Carrington power station were brought in by barge using the River Mersey and the Manchester Ship Canal. Will this method be used again?

This seems to be a site that would be ideal for a very large battery.
