For Meizhou City, Hithium served as core supplier to China Southern Power Grid Company. It was that company’s first 100+ MWh level standalone energy storage project.

Hithium describes the facility as a “demonstration project“ and “the world’s first to be fully supplied with immersion liquid- cooling energy storage”, making it a “milestone application of Hithium’s safer, more efficient liquid-cooling technology.”

Construction took just four months, from start to a trial operation.

The Heze City installation consists of 198 MWh of LFP battery storage plus 2 MWh of VRB (vanadium redox). To meet “continuing demand from large-scale energy storage projects”, Hithium says it is expanding its production capacity to 70 GWh per year by the end of 2023.
