A123 Energy Solutions wins 1MW, 2.8MWh Li-ion Grid Storage Solution contract

A123 Energy Solutions will supply, install, and commission a 1MW, 2.8MWh Grid Storage Solution (GSS) system for IHI Corporation. IHI Corporation is one of the largest industrial equipment manufacturers in Japan and makes products for a diverse set of markets including aerospace, energy, social infrastructure, and heavy machinery. The GSS is currently in the process of being installed at an IHI factory located in the Tohoku region of Japan.

Once operational, the GSS will be used to integrate a large PV solar generation array co-located at the facility and help reduce the factory’s overall load, which will in turn help ease the strain on Japan’s grid which has been in rebuilding mode since the 2011 Eastern Japan earthquake.

The GSS will utilize the company’s Long Duration Grid Battery System (GBS-LD), a standard but flexible grid energy storage unit accommodating configurations that range from 100kW to 4MW. The GBS-LD can be packaged in standardized 20-foot, 40-foot, and 53-foot long containers, custom enclosures, or in pre-existing buildings.

Utilizing A123 Systems Nanophosphate prismatic cell technology, up to 100MW and 100MWh of energy storage can be deployed onto a single acre of land.

A123 Energy Solutions is a division of A123 Systems LLC and a part of Wanxiang Group; it develops and manufactures advanced batteries for electric grid, backup power and lead-acid replacement applications based on A123 Systems Nanophosphate lithium-ion technology.
