Pacific Green Battery Energy Parks 2 Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Pacific Green Technologies, Inc. has acquired 100% of the shares in Sheaf Energy Limited (“Sheaf Energy Park”) for £7.5 million (US$9.1 million) from UK-based energy originator, Tupa Energy (Holdings) Limited.
Sheaf Energy Park will be a 249 MW / 373.5 MWh battery energy storage system (“BESS”) located next to the Richborough Energy Park in Kent, England. Design and construction will begin in the first half of 2023, with the energy park commencing its 35-year operating life in April 2025.
Scott Poulter, Pacific Green’s Chief Executive, commented: “When operational, Sheaf Energy Park will be one of the largest batteries in the UK. Pacific Green is extremely proud to be the industry leader in developing the next generation of large-scale energy parks in support of the country’s transition to Net Zero.”
Building on Pacific Green’s first BESS development, 99.98 MW Richborough Energy Park Limited (pictured above), which is due to connect with the grid in Q2 2023, Sheaf Energy Park is the continuation of the Company’s multi-gigawatt pipeline in the UK and around the world.
Scott added: “Having proven the ability to project finance and develop large scale battery energy storage systems in the UK, the template we have now established provides a streamlined structure for developing these unprecedented battery projects anywhere in the world.”
