GlidePath, Terrasun partner on 50-MW storage project in Houston area
IHI Terrasun Solutions has signed an agreement with GlidePath to provide energy storage system solutions and lifecycle services for the Byrd Ranch Storage Project in Sweeny, Texas, which just started construction.
By providing 50 MW of AC-coupled storage, along with a 10-year warranty and maintenance services, Terrasun will support GlidePath’s efforts to bring Texas customers service through multiple ERCOT reliability markets.
“We are eager to work with GlidePath on these ERCOT initiatives,” said Jamal Burki, President of IHI Terrasun Solutions. “With our continued success in the distributed generation applications, we are focused on providing our same adaptable technology and flexible range of system solutions and services for utility-scale projects like these. We look forward to working alongside GlidePath in their commitment to developing important energy solutions in Texas.”
Terrasun’s technology-agnostic approach integrates multiple top-tier batteries, inverter technologies and intelligent system controls into offerings that enable customers to develop and operate the ideal energy storage solution for their needs. These solutions, coupled with flexible lifecycle services, ensure a continuous successful operation backed by the company’s bankability and long history of reliability.
“IHI Terrasun has been an important partner for GlidePath in the development and construction of the Byrd Ranch Storage Project,” said Chris McKissack, CEO of GlidePath. “IHI was able to provide a dependable and financeable package of systems, warranties and long-term services that will play a key role supporting grid reliability and ensuring the success of Byrd Ranch.”
The Byrd Ranch Storage Project, sited on 2.5 acres, is ideally located approximately 60 miles south of the city of Houston, enhancing local grid resilience in the greater Houston region. Byrd Ranch will be owned and managed by GlidePath following completion of construction in the summer of 2022.
