Kirkwall Power station
Kirkwall Power station
This is the rear of the building and shows the storage tanks once used to oil-fuel the powerful and very noisy turbines. No longer generating power to the homes of Orkney but it has been developed over recent years. Now housing an installation and connection to the grid of a 2MW Energy Storage System (ESS) utilising MHI’s Lithium ion battery may play a role in the release of capacity on the electricity network.
