Ingeteam has announced that it has supplied its storage power station for an initial battery energy storage system (BESS) project in Dubai’s largest solar park.
The company said in a announcement that, “Ingeteam was responsible for the supply of a 1.2 MW power conversion system (PCS) with its medium voltage components (power transformer, MV switchgear etc), and the power plant controller (PPC).”
This pilot project was presented to Abu Dhabi-headquartered Amplex-Emirates LLC by Dubai’s Electricity & Water Authority (DEWA) to install a battery energy storage system at the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park in Dubai; the first energy storage system paired with a photovoltaic plant at a grid-scale level in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Furthermore, Japanese firm NGK Insulators Ltd has supplied its NAS batteries for the project.
The 1.2 MW/7.2 MWh NAS storage system is sanctioning DEWA for estimating the technical and economic capabilities of this technology when integrated with PV arrays in order to increase grid stability and reduce CO2 emissions. In fact, the storage system will be also used for energy time shifting, frequency control and voltage control by using the large capacity of the batteries. This kind of hybrid systems helps to deliver clean and reliable power to energy consumers with greater availability and cost-effectiveness.
