Power generation holding company Therma Marine (TMI) has bought a flexible floating barge-mounted power storage space system from Finnish power and aquatic sector business Wärtsilä.

The Philippines-based subsidiary of Aboitiz Power presently runs a 100MW thermal power intrude the country's Davao de Oro district. Under the engineering, procurement, as well as construction (EPC) contract, Wartsila will supply a barge-mounted 54MW/32MWh storage system for release with the existing barge.

A Wartsila statement says this will certainly be the initial implementation of a floating power storage solution in south-east Asia.

Wärtsilä Australasia Power Business supervisor Kari Punnonen said: "In addition to conference TMI's requirements, it is very important to note that Wärtsilä is the sole EPC company for this sort of a project.

" The option would be to have one supplier for the barge and another for the energy storage system, which would need a great deal of sychronisation and also would certainly slow the final delivery significantly."

The deployment will certainly involve ten Wärtsilä GridSolv Max energy storage space systems making use of the TREASURES power monitoring platform aboard a barge.

A Wärtsilä agent said GridSolv Max has been made to streamline release and also assimilation, dramatically raising energy density and system reliability to address power requirements of customers.

Additionally, the business plans to fast-track the project and also finish the delivery of the barge system in the 4th quarter of this year.

The firm claimed the system will provide flexibility to TMI in its supplementary solution contract with the National Grid of the Philippines.

Floating power barges are commonly made use of for fast electricity supply to locations that have restricted facilities.
