Aggreko, has launched a new fleet of battery storage systems. These are fully integrated units intended to help customers maintain a 100% reliable power supply while reducing the run-time of their thermal generators.
The 30–90 kVA lithium-iron-phosphate (LFP) battery systems have been designed to offer a robust and highly mobile solution for users with varying needs and contract durations, regardless of their load profile. Due to the units’ small footprint of 1.14m X 1.45m X 1.58m, and weight of 1360kg, they are suitable for numerous different applications.
Benefits are said to be an ‘up to 80%’ reduction in generator run time compared to thermal-only solutions, and an average 40-50% reductions in fuel costs and emissions, reaching up to 90% reductions for specific applications. There would be concomitant reductions in generator O&M downtime and flexibility for a range of lease durations, including long-term projects and installations.
The lithium-ion battery storage units can be combined with Aggreko’s thermal or renewable power generation systems to create hybrid solutions – particularly key for sectors with operations which take place in populated areas and thereby require minimal noise pollution and low emissions.
“Aggreko has been leading the way with battery technology since the acquisition of Younicos in 2017, and the addition of these compact storage systems to our offer means we are able to support customers with projects of any size, anywhere in the world, to achieve their low-carbon targets” commented Dan Ibbetson, md of Global Products & Technology at Aggreko.
