Wörrstadt, Germany - In addition to the technical and commercial management of wind and solar energy plants, Juwi Operations & Maintenance GmbH (Juwi O&M), the operations management subsidiary of Juwi AG, now also offers operations management for large-scale battery storage systems.

The service offering for large-scale battery storage systems includes maintenance, repair and troubleshooting. Juwi O&M has more than 25 years of comprehensive expertise in the field of operations management. Together with highly qualified service technicians in the wind and solar sectors, Juwi O&M has the know-how to handle the maintenance and troubleshooting of large-scale battery storage systems, according to Juwi O&M commercial manager Lorenz Heinen.

For Juwi O&M, the maintenance and operational management of storage systems is an important future market. "In order to stabilize electricity grids in the future and enable a permanent power supply from renewable energies, energy storage systems are of great importance. We want to develop this market with our qualified personnel," Heinen continued.

After Juwi O&M has been responsible for the operational management of a large-scale storage facility in Belgium since November 2021, the company will soon take over the operational management of further battery storage systems.
