Correio dos Açores,

“…..Leclanché worked impressively to deliver the BESS before the end of 2015 which enabled, along with other key investments, us to secure a EUR 5m non-refundable subsidy. An extension for completing the project was obtained until the end of 2016. Leclanché commissioned the BESS during 2016 however other parts of the hybrid renewable power plant remained incomplete including the EMS that was being delivered by Younicos (formally as sub-suppliers to Leclanché)….. At the end of 2017 Leclanche took the difficult decision (with the support of Graciolica Lda) to terminate Younicos EMS sub-supply agreement. We engaged Greensmith directly to provide the EMS and engaged Tractabel as project managers…

We obtained a further extension from our client and off-take partner (the local utility EDA) to complete the project by the end of 2018. We invested in excess of an additional EUR 4m (on top of the EUR 25m already invested) to replace the EMS, inverters, transformers and related civil works. We greatly appreciate Leclanche’s approach during the last 12 months where there has been significant support required and given to successfully complete the project.

We have been in full testing and commissioning phase since September this year. Final tests are under way and scheduled to complete on 19 December where after the plant will enter into commercial operations under the 20+5 year power purchase agreement between ourselves and EDA….”
