On July 4th, the 100 MW battery energy storage demonstration project of Henan power grid – 9.6MW Xinyang Longshan 110KV substation battery energy storage demonstration project was successfully connected to the grid-side and passed acceptance, which was deployed by State Grid Corporation, State Grid Henan Electric Power Company, Pinggao Group Co., Ltd., and Narada provide complete pre-installed energy storage equipment.
This project is a distributed energy storage power station invested and operated by the power grid company, and Narada is the contractor of the energy storage complete set.
This project adopts the advanced pre-installed modular lithium iron phosphate energy storage technology, which is a typical application of Narada to enter the domestic power grid-side and has a huge impact in the development of its energy storage business.
In 2018, State Grid Henan Electric Power company selected 16 substations in 9 regions, such as Luoyang and Xinyang, to carry out the construction of the first grid-side 100 MW distributed battery energy storage demonstration project in domestic, which adopted the technical scheme of “distributed layout, modular design, unit access, centralized regulation and control”.
The peak-to-valley difference of Henan power grid accounts for about 40% of the maximum load. In addition, the rapid development of renewable energy in recent years has brought great challenges to the safe operation of power grids and power supply services. It will effectively alleviate these problems after this demonstration project is connected to the grid.
This demonstration project uses a lithium-ion energy storage system which was developed independently by Narada. There are 8 container-type battery energy storage units with a rated power of 1.2MW/1.2MWh. The system has the characteristics of modularization, standardization, quickness, low cost, high safety, etc. The transportation and installation are convenient and fast, from project design to acceptance and delivery, the whole project period is no more than 30 days.
This project is a new exploration of Narada in the grid-side energy storage market. As the first energy storage system provider of this project, Narada has realized efficient and high-quality delivery and successfully passed the acceptance, providing implementation experience for other grid-side projects and opening a new chapter for the construction of Narada storage power station.
