ADS-TEC installs 20 MW BESS for Polar Structure AB in Sweden
Battery charging and storage tech firm ADS-TEC Energy has announced the installation of eight large-scale storage containers based battery energy storage solution in Sweden, with a total capacity of over 20 MW, for sustainable infrastructure development company Polar Structure AB.
Delivering a total output of over 20 MW, the system offers more than just energy storage, the company claims. It is an intelligent platform solution that provides grid-supporting services. In the event of grid fluctuations, battery storage is used to stabilize the grid as well as to store and distribute sustainably generated energy, it adds.
Thomas Speidel, CEO of ADS-TEC Energy, explained, "The transition to a carbon-neutral energy economy is one of the greatest challenges of our time. In particular, the energy systems of tomorrow will be more electrified, more digitalized, and more decentralized".
"We are proud that we were able to develop and install a modular large-scale storage facility for our partner Polar Structure with a total capacity of over 20 MW, a first for Sweden. This successful partnership with Polar Structure demonstrates the demand for large-scale grid-stabilizing storage systems", he added.
The storage systems are developed and built in-house at ADS-TEC Energy's facility in Germany. They can be easily integrated into existing systems including PV systems and charging stations that use self-generated energy. Their plug-and-play design makes them easy to deploy, the company claims.
Moreover, the storage solutions are complemented by comprehensive services and secure remote access to all operational data, resulting in reliable long-term operation, ADS-TEC Energy adds. The company's goal is a decentralized energy system that is safe, efficient, and used to its full potential in a carbon-neutral world.
"ADS-TEC Energy won us over with its vast expertise, technological excellence, and innovation in smart energy storage", said Roland Petterson, Project Manager at Polar Structure.
"The company's solutions offer optimal performance and adaptability to our specific requirements. We are delighted that the collaboration has been so efficient and smooth from development, through production and installation, and that we are now able to leverage such a high storage capacity", he added.
