In Ventavon, in the Hautes-Alpes region, Equans is participating in the construction of one of the three pilot units of the experiment called RINGO. Ambitious and innovative, the project (authorized by the CRE) will host a new-generation LMP® (Lithium Metal Polymer) battery known as "all-solid" has the particular advantage of being safer because it is nonflammable. Designed by Blue Solutions, a subsidiary of the Bolloré Group, the battery has a capacity of 10 MW and can store the equivalent of the consumption of 10,000 households. The energy stored in the battery when the grid is at risk of saturation is destored elsewhere simultaneously.
In the RINGO project, Blue Solutions is the lead company in the consortium that will supply and install the LMP® batteries. Equans will be in charge of the civil engineering studies and connection work. Equans' SCLE teams will design, supply, test, and commission the electrical equipment, energy conversion system, storage system control, and high voltage substation.
