Saft, a wholly-owned Total subsidiary, has won an order for three Intensium Max 20 High Energy containers from Finnish wind developer-operator TuuliWatti, Kallanish Energy reports.
The Lithium-Ion (Li-ion) energy storage system (ESS) will support frequency regulation at a 21-megawatt wind farm in northwestern Finland. It will also optimize the wind power, as well as provide backup and black start capabilities.
The Li-Ion ESS, the largest in the Nordic countries, is sized to provide energy storage capacity of 6.6 megawatt-hours (MWh) and deliver 5.6 MW of power for frequency regulation throughout its 15-year lifetime.
“The Intensium Max 20 HE container offers more than twice the energy storage capacity of previous Saft containers and provides best-in-class energy density, lifetime and assured performance,” said Hervé Amossé, executive vice president, ESS division of Saft.
This project’s ESS comes in three integrated containers of 2.2 MWh each, designed and manufactured at Saft’s facility in Bordeaux, France.
