U.K. Plans Giant Battery to Manage Surge in Offshore Wind

  • Sembcorp to build Britain’s biggest battery in Teesside
  • First phase of project is due to be completed by 2023

Sembcorp Industries Ltd. plans to build the U.K.’s biggest battery on the northeast coast of England as the country seeks a more reliable stream of electricity from its growing fleet of wind farms.

The 360-megawatt project will be installed in Teesside, on land already owned by the Singapore-based company, it said Tuesday in a statement. The U.K. has a major cluster of offshore wind farms nearby.
