  • The largest battery energy storage system (BESS) in Brazil has a capacity of The 30 MW/60 MWh.
  • You.On chose Kehua inverters paired with CATL liquid-cooled batteries for the project.

US based Fractal EMS Inc as well as You.On have actually revealed that they have actually finished the assimilation of the largest battery energy storage system (BESS) in Brazil that has a capacity of The 30 MW/60 MWh. You.On is a Brazil based company specialising in storage solutions.

The official statement of Fractal EMS held that the BESS project will discharge during high load periods and defer the expense of constructing an added transmission line (non-wires alternative) by supplying power at the end of an overloaded line. Fractal EMS is equipment agnostic, while You.On picked Kehua inverters coupled with CATL liquid-cooled batteries.

Fractal EMS stated that You.On was the system integrator and was selected through a competitive process. The project lies in Registro, Brazil as well as is had by ISA CTEEP. The 30 MW/ 60 MWh BESS will certainly enhance the durability of the ISA owned transmission line and also will certainly lower the requirement to import electrical energy from peaker plants. The company supplied the controls, HMI, historian, networking and SCADA.

Daniel Crotzer, CEO of Fractal EMS, said, "The energy storage market in Brazil represents a considerable development chance. Brazil is the world's leader in renewable resource, battery storage could push Brazil to 100% tidy energy."

Based on reports the BESS project called for a financial investment of $27 million and the transmission driver could make $5 million every year from the facility.

The Contractor

Fractal EMS is a totally vertical controls platform that consists of software, controllers, combination and also analytics that uses complete command, control, tracking as well as monitoring for solar energy and also storage projects. Fractal EMS maximizes security as well as profitability of storage and hybrid systems. The platform asserts to have 4 GWh in operation around the world as well as over 10 GWh of awarded projects.

The energy storage framework advancement in Brazil is yet to obtain speed. Mining business Vale is anticipated to deploy a 5MW/10 MWh energy storage facility in the country.
