Sunseap Energy Ventures has installed 2.4 MW/2.4 MWh energy storage system (ESS) supplied by the technology group Wärtsilä under an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract.

Sunseap Energy Ventures is an Asia-Pacific Incubator & Accelerator Program which aims to discover the next big tech disruptor or company that focuses on renewable energy and energy-related inonovations.

Further, the ESS facility is a test-bed supported by Singapore’s Energy Market Authority (EMA) and SP Group and represents an important milestone in the country’s energy transition towards a low-carbon energy future.

This is the first utility-scale ESS in Singapore. It features Wärtsilä’s GEMS advanced energy management platform, as well as the company’s GridSolv Max solution, a standardised energy storage technology designed for safety with core storage hardware assets, including batteries and inverters.

Commenting on the development, Frank Phuan, CEO and Executive Director of Sunseap Group, said “this is an important step forward for Singapore’s energy system. We expect this first battery system in Singapore to enhance grid stability by providing the quick response and flexibility needed when integrating solar power into the grid. This project will also provide learnings for future ESS applications and pave the way for more solar power to generate more green energy in Singapore.”

The ESS will participate in the wholesale electricity market to provide services necessary to mitigate intermittency caused by solar, as well as reduce peak demand. The utility-scale energy storage system will also provide insights into ESS’ performance under Singapore’s hot and humid environment and will aid in establishing technical guidelines for such deployments.

“Energy storage is rapidly becoming a key issue for the global energy markets, and the combination of our unique GEMS software, the GridSolv Max solution, and Wärtsilä’s EPC capabilities have given us a leading position in this field. We are proud to be playing an important role in helping Singapore achieve a low-carbon energy future,” said Nicolas Leong, Energy Business Director, North & South East Asia, Wärtsilä.

Singapore targets to have at least 2 GW of solar deployment by 2030, and an energy storage deployment of 200 MW beyond 2025.
