  • It will supply its liquid cooled energy storage system (ESS) called PowerTitan to a 150 MW project in West Yorkshire.
  • The project, with construction as a result of start in May 2023, has the grid connection confirmed for June 2024 and also is set to be operational by October 2024.

Chinese inverter as well as energy storage system remedy maker as well as supplier Sungrow has announced that it has signed a contract to provide its liquid cooled energy storage system (ESS) called PowerTitan to a 150MW/300MWh project in Ferrybridge, West Yorkshire, the United Kingdom.

Sungrow said that the project is anticipated to increase complete grid security as well as bolster the UK's energy change.

The 150MW/300MWh project lies at the repetitive Ferrybridge coal power station and also its the most up to date in SSE Solar as well as Battery's growing pipeline of projects located across the UK. The project, with construction due to begin in May 2023, has the grid connection verified for June 2024 and is set to be operational by October 2024.

Sungrow will offer the project with its liquid cooled ESS PowerTitan. Tailored for utility-scale energy storage demand, the PowerTitan embraces innovative liquid-cooled thermal management as well as AI surveillance of the battery cells so regarding safeguard the system's security as well as guarantee an exceptional life-span.

Meanwhile, the DC-DC controller of the ESS can charge and also release battery racks independently, thus, raising the overall system efficiency, said Sungrow.

The PowerTitan allows the project a good roi with top shaving- charging the batteries when electricity prices go to their most affordable and also discharging to avoid paying optimal costs throughout the expensive times of the day.

Lewis Li, President of Sungrow Europe, said, "Sungrow is proud to provide our liquid cooled energy storage system, the PowerTitan, to this spots project. We are thrilled wherefore is to find with our collaboration with SSE as we function towards maximizing the profitability for the project with innovative services and products."

With regards to the UK energy storage market, Sungrow recently authorized a deal to supply Constantine Energy Storage (CES) with its liquid-cooled BESS service for the certain pipe of projects completing 825 MWh of capacity spread throughout five ready-to-build sites in the UK. CES is a grid-scale battery energy storage platform.
