New space-efficient battery storage from Saft

25 October 2022

Designated Modular Intensium Shift (I-Shift) the 3 MWh containers are scalable building blocks and can be installed in combination with power conversion equipment with a 50% smaller system footprint, while reducing 50% of site-related activities, allowing a faster deployment of utility-scale storage plants.

The new unit is said to provide for easy sea and road transportation, standardisation, and plug-and-play installation to speed up project delivery. For instance, says Saft, four groups of twin line-ups with 48 I-Shift containers can provide a reliable 32MW/128 MWh four- hour energy storage system with lower land requirements and civil works’ needs.

Herve´ Amosse´, Saft’s executive vice president for energy storage commented: “I-Shift’s innovative design, covered by eight new patents, includes improvements on thermal efficiency and ruggedness, with 30% more storage capacity.”

Available from mid-2023, Intensium Shift (I-Shift) is based on lithium iron phosphate (LFP) technology. It is said to be suited to energy time- shifting, peaking and capacity support applications on transmission and distribution grids. Customers can use these individual 20-foot 3.0 MWh containers to handle the output of multi-megawatt sites for between two and eight hours, either co- located on renewable farms, or as standalone sites.

I-Shift containers are fully populated in Saft’s factories and use a modular approach embedding batteries, thermal systems and digital control interfaces connecting to Saft’s cloud-based data platform ‘I-Sight’.
