Sungrow will work with leading renewable energy provider Super Energy to build Southeast Asia’s largest battery energy storage system (BESS) project in Thailand.

Sungrow will supply the comprehensive PV plus BESS solution, comprising of 49.01MW PV inverter solutions and 45MW/136.24MWh battery energy storage system.

This project is planned to start in April 2022, and will be commercial in December. By then, it can provide clean electricity for Thai people with constant power, help improve the overall stability and security of Thai power grid, and quicken Thai’s step to realise the National 4.0 Strategy.

Its completion also opens a new phase for Sungrow’s long-term strategic progress in the solar and energy storage field in Southeast Asia.

The project will feature an advanced liquid-cooled energy storage system will be applied, which can significantly save the delivery and installation costs, and prolong the overall life of the system. The battery cabinet and PCS enclosure also adopt high protection level. Hence, the energy storage system can maintain efficient yield without deteriorating in Thailand’s humid environment.

Sungrow will also integrate its self-developed intelligent energy management system (EMS) and monitoring system, which simplify the post operation and maintenance procedure. As a result, Super Energy harvests the greatly-reduced LCOS and the improved plant stability and efficiency.

As two major players in the global new energy arena, Super Energy and Sungrow have been strategic partners for six years and jointly completed several successful projects in Southeast Asia, such as the 330MW PV project in Vietnam last year.
