About this Project
A new 200MW stand alone battery storage system was constructed near the town of Seguin, TX. Due to the expansive soils on site and soil remediation required to use concrete, helical piles were the logical choice. USH installed over 1,700 piles to support the battery and pcs containers in under 30 days ahead of schedule. USH provided engineering, material procurement and installation of piles with 2 crews on site at all times.
Two 100MW battery energy storage system (BESS) projects in Texas have been brought online by independent power producer (IPP) Broad Reach Power, for participation in the Electricity Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) market.
Both transmission-level systems are 100MW / 100MWh each, representing over US$100 million of investment. Located on greenfield sites in Texas’ Mason County and Williamson County, they have the respective project names of North Fork and Bat Cave.
