Burns & McDonnell has completed construction of three 10-MW/20-MWh lithium-ion battery energy storage systems in West Texas. The three project sites were built, commissioned and commissioned in just five months, delivering the project on schedule in a volatile supply chain and logistics market.

The batteries are designed as self-contained energy sources to support the Texas power grid as it experiences fluctuations in supply and demand.

“Having an integrated EPC team ensured a smooth transition between each phase of the project,” said Josh Tucker, project manager at Burns & McDonnell. “It also allowed us to pivot and work with our construction team to adjust the schedule, rearrange tasks and properly transfer the system between construction and commissioning to see the project go online and generating revenue on the promised completion date.”

From the outset of the project, Burns & McDonnell worked closely with battery supplier, LG Energy Solution, to coordinate the design and delivery of equipment and materials to the site during construction and commissioning. Burns & McDonnell integrated the system components with Emerson’s Ovation automation technology for reliable, secure and robust asset monitoring and control. As an open source platform, Ovation software increases visibility into battery operation and simplifies system management, allowing the storage system owner/operator to view, optimize and change controls even years after commissioning as system requirements change.
