Irby Awarded Manatee Battery Project
Florida Power & Light recently awarded Irby the construction of the world’s current largest battery storage facility project called Manatee Energy Storage Center. This 409MW/900 MWh energy storage center, the equivalent of 100 million iPhone batteries, will begin construction in September and is scheduled to be completed late 2021. Following its completion, the storage center is expected to store enough energy to power nearly 329,000 homes for two straight hours. Read more about the project here.
Congratulations to Jeff Sowards, Substation Operations Lead, and his team for such a huge win. Good luck and stay safe!
