BESS specialist Hithium, based in Xiamen, China, has completed the installation of a 140 MWh energy storage system at a power plant located in Meizhou City, Guangdong Province.
The storage system deploys advanced LFP battery products from Hithium. The power station is thought to be the world’s first to be fully supplied with immersion liquid-cooling energy storage products, making it a milestone application of what Hithium says is a safer, more efficient liquid-cooling technology. With construction lasting just four months from start to a trial operation, the plant can discharge almost 81 million kWh per year.
Marked as a demonstration project for the city of nearly 4 million by the province’s Energy Department and CSG, the standalone storage facility is intended to provide the region with greater energy security and stability, particularly enabling a more reliable supply of renewables. The station is designed to realise a wide array of functions including peak shaving and greater operational stability and safety for the grid.
“Projects like this are exactly why we built Hithium’s technology and culture around customer-centricity. CSG and the province needed this project delivered quickly, safely, and with a very high quality of product,” commented Jason Wang, Hithium general manager and co-founder. “So we set up a special service team to co-ordinate the entire process, from manufacturing and shipping the batteries to ensuring timely project development and the professionalism of the process.”
