This paper is about the case study, design and implementation results of the application of a flywheel energy storage system on a large scale industrial level. This will focus on the necessity of smooth uninterruptible power especially for continuous process industries in South Asia. It will include the design for integration of 2.5 MVA flywheel based uninterruptable power supply units with a combination of a distributed generation system and a state grid power system. The operation scheme of this system will also be described. We will also depict the results of the application based on real time data for one year. The economic impacts of the installation for a continuous process extrusion plant are also described. Moreover the overall effect of this integrated power system on the operation and carbon footprint of continuous process plants in Pakistan will also be discussed.
