Dispatch, a Dutch battery developer, is to build the largest stand-alone battery storage system (BESS) in the Netherlands, in which Stek acted as its advisor.

The battery with a capacity of 45 MW/90 MWh will be built in the port area of Dordrecht on a 6,000 m² site in the coming months. The BESS will be used for grid stabilisation, using energy from renewable sources.

Eneco will deploy the battery on a long-term basis to manage differences in supply and demand on the energy markets. Dispatch is realising the BESS in cooperation with infrastructure fund EPICo², Macquarie Capital, and lender ABN Amro.
