AES Selects Mitsubishi-GS Yuasa and Parker-Hannifin to supply Li-ion grid Energy Storage System in Chile

7 December 2012

AES Gener and AES Energy Storage have selected Parker-Hannifin to supply advanced battery energy storage systems for their new Cochrane power station. The battery energy storage system will be supplied by Mitsubishi Corporation with the lithium-ion battery module manufactured by GS Yuasa and the lithium ion battery cells by Lithium Energy Japan, a joint venture of Mitsubishi Corporation and GS Yuasa.

The project is the companies’ third energy storage facility in Northern Chile, integrating 20MW of advanced battery-based energy storage with a 532MW thermal power plant. The project is owned by AES Gener, the second-largest power generator in the country, and Mitsubishi Corporation.

The Cochrane facility being developed by AES Gener, will incorporate AES Energy Storage’s Advanced Reserves product including controls, a modular system architecture, and operational support. The advanced lithium-ion battery modules for the project will be supplied by GS Yuasa, and the battery cells will be supplied by Lithium Energy Japan, a lithium-ion battery manufacturer which supplies large capacity cells for automotive and industrial applications.

AES Gener and AES Energy Storage have previously developed energy storage projects at the Norgener and Angamos power stations. The first of these, the Los Andes Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) has been delivering grid reliability services since 2009.
