Sungrow partners with Investment Fund WEG-4 for ESS solution in Chile


Sungrow has joined hands with Investment Fund WEG-4 for an energy storage system (ESS) solution in Chile.

As per the agreement, Sungrow will supply 60MW/132MWh of its liquid cooled energy storage system solution to the PowerTitan. The project will be based within Maria Elena Solar Park of 72.8 MW capacity located in Antofagasta.

It has been expected that the project will boost the stability and flexibility of the Chilean national electric system and will support the local carbon-neutral ambitions.

As per reports, the Maria Elena Solar Park was commissioned in 2015. However, the energy storage for energy shifting was launched after a few years of the park’s operation. The company shared that the energy storage system will enhance the overall efficiency of the solar park and grid stability.

According to Sungrow, the liquid cooled ESS PowerTitan will be used for this installation.

“The solution is designed based on Sungrow’s power electronics, electrochemistry, and power grid support technologies. It cuts capital and operating expenses due to its pre-assembled and easy installation design, and with a more effective cell working environment which substantially decreases the capacity loss rate,” a local report mentioned.

To be noted, PowerTitan has also been recognized as the world’s first iF Design Award winner in the utility-scale energy storage system category.
