Sungrow, the global leading inverter solution supplier for renewables, cooperated with Thailand-based Super Energy, the leading renewable energy provider in South East Asia to build Southeast Asian largest battery energy storage system (BESS) project.
Under the project, Sungrow will supply the comprehensive 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 scheduled to start in April 2022, and will be commercial in December. The completion of the project will help improve the overall stability and security of Thai power grid and quicken Thai’s step to develop an economic system adjusted to climate change and building a low carbon society.
Under the recently unveiled Power Development Plan, or PDP 2018 (2018-2037) Thailand sets the goal of renewable power capacity of 2,766 MW, accounting for 37% of the total.
“This agreement was the driver for Super Energy and Sungrow’s cooperation on this major Thai BESS project. Besides, this plant is also a pioneer of SPP Hybrid Firm Power Purchasing Program, an initiative launched by Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT), aiming to make renewable energy the stable supply of future power,” Sungrow noted in the statement. “It also opens a new phase for Sungrow’s long-term strategic progress in the Solar and Energy Storage field in Southeast Asia,” the company said in the statement.
As the IPP, Super Energy prioritizes the plant’s efficient, safe and stable operation in the long run. Sungrow accordingly provides the industry-leading PV plus energy storage system solution for the plant. Notably, the most advanced liquid-cooled energy storage system will be applied, which can significantly save the delivery and installation costs, and prolong the overall life of the system. Besides, Sungrow integrated the self-developed intelligent energy management system (EMS) and monitoring system, which simplify the post operation and maintenance procedure.
