Sungrow Bags Largest BESS Project In South East Asia

Nov 16, 2021 10:25 AM ET
  • The increasing approval of storage space with solar is widening the market for solar, in addition to faster renewables fostering.
  • For Sungrow, the chances are enormous for its storage offerings, considering its understanding of essential markets via its flagship inverter business.

Leading inverter solution distributor Sungrow is dealing with Super Energy, a leading renewable energy provider in South East Asia to build Southeast Asian largest battery energy storage system (BESS) project. Sungrow will provide the extensive PV plus BESS solution, comprising of 49.01 MW PV inverter solutions and 45 MW/136.24 MWh battery energy storage system. This project is intended to begin in April 2022, as well as will be business in December. The project is expected to supply continuous power, aid improve the overall stability as well as safety and security of Thai power grid, and also quicken Thailand's steps to recognize the National 4.0 Technique. Completion will likewise mark a key milestone for Sungrow in the area for its storage space outreach.

Thailand Transitions to a Future of Renewable Energy

The Thailand 4.0 nationwide technique includes: developing an economic system gotten used to environment adjustment and also constructing a low carbon culture. Relocating towards making use of renewable energy is a vital step to its understanding. The just recently revealed Power Development Plan (PDP 2018-2037) set the objective of renewable power capacity of 2,766 MW, making up 37% of the total amount. What is more, Thai federal government has actually fully acknowledged that renewable energy can not be a reliable as well as secure source unless incorporated with energy storage systems. This contract was the chauffeur for Super Energy and Sungrow's collaboration on this major Thai BESS project. Besides, this plant is likewise a pioneer of SPP Hybrid Company Power Buying Program, a campaign introduced by Power Generating Authority of Thailand, intending to make renewable energy the stable supply of future power.

Sungrow's Solar plus ESS Solution and Industry-Leading Liquid-Cooling System Improves the Overall Efficiency

As the IPP, Super Energy focuses on the plant's efficient, safe as well as stable operation in the future. Sungrow accordingly provides the industry-leading PV plus ESS solution for the plant. Notably, the most sophisticated liquid-cooled energy storage space system will certainly be applied, which can considerably conserve the delivery and installation expenses, as well as extend the overall life of the system. The battery cabinet and PCS unit likewise adopt high security degree. Therefore, the energy storage system can maintain efficient yield without derating in warm and wet setting in Thailand. Besides, Sungrow integrated the self-developed smart energy administration system (EMS) and also keeping track of system, which streamline the message procedure and upkeep procedure. As a result of the incorporated solution, Super Energy harvests the greatly-reduced LCOS and the improved plant stability as well as performance.

Expecting the Future of the Southeast Asian Renewable Market

As 2 major gamers in the international brand-new energy field, Super Energy and also Sungrow have been calculated partners for 6 years and also jointly finished a number of successful projects in Southeast Asia, such as the 330 MW PV project in Vietnam last year. The advancing participation has accomplished GW scale. Amongst all the previous ones, this BESS project is a milestone, which can assist improve Thai power structure, speed up the establishment of smart power grid as well as potentially guide the future power generation and storage of brand-new energy in the whole Southeast area.
