November 15, 2023: Narada Power said on November 10 it had shipped a 100MW/200MWh BESS to the Hebi Baoshan economic development zone in China’s Shandong province.
The lead and lithium battery manufacturer said it won the tender for the BESS, for an undisclosed sum, earlier this year.
The system comprises 60 containers featuring the company’s proprietary ‘center L’ liquid-cooled 280Ah lithium battery tech and will help improve the stability of electricity supply in the area and promote the use of renewables, Narada said.
Center L was unveiled in September 2022. Narada says the system includes enhanced fire suppression measures — together with a “precise early warning system” to identify incidences of thermal runaway.
Earlier this month, Narada said it had signed a Rmb335 million ($46 million) deal with Shanghai Electric Power Design Institute Materials to supply lithium iron phosphate batteries for a BESS project in Western Australia.
