January 25, 2024: BESS developer Powin said on January 16 it had finalized plans for the supply of 5GWh of LFP cells from stationary battery firm HiTHIUM over the next three years.

The deal builds on an agreement unveiled in June 2023 for an initial 1.5GWh of 300Ah LFP cells.

HiTHIUM claims the 300Ah cells have an energy efficiency of 95% and an energy density of 170 Wh/kg.

The China-based manufacturer, which has sites in Germany, the United Arab Emirates and California, claims the cells can operate for more than 12,000 cycles.

HiTHIUM VP Monee Pang said the agreement with US-based Powin represents its largest order to date outside its home market.

Powin says it has more than 6GWh of energy storage systems deployed or under construction worldwide to date.

Last May, Powin announced the selection of Florida-based Jabil to produce its Stack750E utility-scale energy storage system product in the US.

Jabil was contracted to produce an initial annual capacity of 2GWh, with plans to ramp up to 4GWh per year.
