LS ELECTRIC held a groundbreaking ceremony at the site of the Botley ESS project in the UK, attended by over 50 project stakeholders, including Kim Jong-woo, the Global/SE CIC (Subsidiary Independent Company) President of LS ELECTRIC.

LS ELECTRIC secured a £73.56 million (approximately KRW 120 billion or $106 million) contract for the construction of the Botley ESS project in the UK. This is the largest overseas ESS project undertaken by LS ELECTRIC, with completion scheduled for June next year.

The project involves the installation of a 50MW Power Conversion System (PCS) and a 114MWh battery-based ESS system, enabling the stable supply of electricity generated in the Botley region to the National Grid transmission network, a UK power utility.

Drawing on its accumulated expertise in smart energy projects both domestically and internationally, LS ELECTRIC will be responsible for the design, procurement, construction (EPC), and integrated operation (O&M) of the ESS system.

Kim Jong-woo, the President of LS ELECTRIC, stated, "We will do our best to ensure the successful execution of the largest overseas ESS project, leading to meaningful outcomes. As the importance of ESS in the UK and other European countries with increasing demand for renewable energy becomes more prominent, we will strengthen our reliability and capabilities to foster LS ELECTRIC as a long-term strategic hub in these markets."
