TotalEnergies Launches New Battery Energy Storage Project in Belgium

Last Updated on 03rd April 2024

TotalEnergies has announced the development of a second battery storage project in Belgium. The announcement was made during Belgian Energy Minister Tinne Van der Straeten's visit to TotalEnergies' Antwerp refinery. These two projects, representing a global investment of nearly USD 75 million, will bring TotalEnergies' storage capacity in Belgium to 50 MW / 150 MWh.


TotalEnergies Launches New Battery Storage Project in Belgium


The new Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) project will be developed on the site of the TotalEnergies depot in Feluy. It will have a power rating of 25 MW and a capacity of 75 MWh, thanks to Saft's forty Intensium Max High Energy lithium-ion containers. Saft, a subsidiary of TotalEnergies, specializes in advanced technology battery solutions for the industry. The project is expected to start by the end of 2025.

As an electricity producer, TotalEnergies relies in particular on the Marchienne-au-Pont Combined Cycle Gas Turbine (CCGT) power plant (430 MW), the Plate-Taille hydroelectric storage (140 MW), and an offshore wind farm located in the Belgian North Sea (300 MW). TotalEnergies is also developing solar and onshore wind projects in Europe, with a portfolio of 300 MW.


These battery storage sites play a key role in the resilience of the electricity system, providing flexibility and helping solve grid congestion problems. They also encourage the growth of renewable energies in the country, which require solutions such as battery storage to compensate for their intermittency.


"We are pleased to announce this new storage project in Feluy, just a year after we began our Antwerp project, which should be operational by the end of the year. These projects are fully in line with our integrated development strategy for electricity, not just in Belgium, but globally," said Olivier Jouny, Senior Vice President, Integrated Power at TotalEnergies. "These technical systems also confirm the European leadership of our affiliate specialized in battery production, Saft, and its industrial-scale stationary storage know-how."
