Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction (DHIC) announced on Dec. 15 that it will build an energy storage system (ESS) worth 110 billion won in Australia along with its U.S. subsidiary Doosan GridTech.
DHIC has won an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract to build the ESS in the Jerrabomberra District, one of the 18 districts of the Australian Capital Territory (ACT), by March 2023. The Australian capital of Canberra belongs to the Jerrabomberra District.
After installing the system, DHIC will operate and maintain it for 20 years. The system's capacity is 200㎿h, which is enough to supply power to about 25,000 households for a day.
DHIC will use Doosan GridTech’s controlling software, DG-IC, in building the ESS.
