South Africa’s Eskom plans 1.4GWh battery storage tender, largest on the continent

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Greentech Media:South Africa’s utility Eskom is preparing to launch a tender for 1.4 gigawatt-hours of battery storage that will need to be installed by December 2021.The large-scale energy storage tender, the first of its kind in the country and in Africa as a whole, will be split into two phases, with an initial 200 megawatts/800 megawatt-hours of capacity to be built by December 2020, an Eskom official said.This first phase of implementation will be divided into four packages, and will be followed by 160 megawatts/640 megawatt-hours to be installed a year later, Prince Moyo, general manager for power delivery engineering at Eskom, said during a Wednesday webinar. The second phase will include 60 megawatts of solar to be integrated with the battery storage, along with an asset performance management system.The tender has already been approved by South Africa’s Ministry of Finance, Moyo said. The only ministry that has not yet signed off is the Department of Public Enterprises, Moyo added. That consent “has been escalated to the highest level,” he said, without committing to a launch date for the solicitation. “It’s imminent,” he said.Moyo called the battery tender “a flagship project” for Eskom, which supplies around 90 percent of South Africa’s electricity via more than 45 gigawatts of generation. “We are moving toward cleaner power,” he said.More: South Africa’s Eskom preparing first large-scale battery tender South Africa’s Eskom plans 1.4GWh battery storage tender, largest on the continentlast_img read more

Outdoor Updates: National Park Service treated more than 230,000 acres of public land to reduce wildfire risk

first_imgA paper published in the Science of the Total Environment has determined that the Chinese paddlefish is extinct. The species was one of the world’s largest fish, reaching up to 23 feet in length, and had survived for 200 million years in China’s Yangtze River. The study blames overfishing and dam construction for the fish’s demise, specifically the Gezhouba Dam, built on the Yangtze River, which was erected without a fish ladder or bypass and permanently separated the paddlefish from their spawning grounds. The National Park Service announced that 230,308 acres of public land were treated in FY 2019 to reduce wildlife risks in the parks. Prescribed fire was used to treat nearly 207,000 acres, and an additional 24,000 acres were treated by mechanical and other methods, such as vegetation management, the park service said in a press release. Additionally, the park service reached a milestone in FY 2019, having now surveying 90% of the 31,339 structures listed in the NPS Wildland Fire Geodatabase for threats from wildland fire. In addition to treating wildfire risks domestically, the Department of the Interior and the U.S. Forest Service are supporting ongoing efforts to combat the wildfires in Australia, deploying 150 firefighters so far, 10 from the National Park Service.  Ouch!

Park officials have closed the area while they evaluate the incident but stress that alligator attacks in that location are extremely rare.  An 18-year-old college student was hiking with a professor and other students on a wet trail in Everglades National Park when an alligator bit her lower right leg. Allyson Gantt, a spokeswoman for the park, described the incident as “low pain,” and said that the young woman received two small puncture wounds.
