Groundbreaking power storage portfolio, together with the area’s first system, to stabilize electrical energy grids throughout the nation
Fluence introduced it has accomplished commissioning of two 20 MW / 20 MWh battery-based power storage techniques within the Philippines for San Miguel Company International Energy Holdings Corp. (SMCGPH). The preliminary tasks signify the primary wave of an power storage portfolio totaling 470 MW / 470 MWh throughout 13 undertaking websites that SMCGPH has contracted Fluence to produce and maintain. SMCGPH’s battery-based power storage portfolio is the largest such procurement to date in Southeast Asia and can present important grid stability companies for energy grids throughout the Philippines, together with managing frequency and voltage and supplying reactive energy.
SMCGPH’s broad portfolio procurement builds on its work with the Fluence workforce to successfully deploy the region’s first battery energy storage system, a ten MW / 10 MWh system sited on the Masinloc Energy Plant in Zambales. The undertaking served as each a proof of idea and a template for the event of subsequent SMCGPH power storage property throughout the Philippine grid.
To simplify undertaking growth and maximize the pace of supply, SMCGPH and Fluence collaborated to develop a standard-sized 20 MW “constructing block” utilizing Fluence’s power storage expertise. Working with a longtime, bankable power storage expertise supplier enabled SMCGPH to shortly roll out state-of-the-art techniques constructed on classes realized from Fluence’s a few years of worldwide deployment expertise.
With undertaking websites ranging in measurement from 20 to 60 MW, the total portfolio is focused to be delivered and commissioned in 2022, making it not solely one of many largest deployments of grid-scale battery-based power storage on a single nationwide grid, however one of many quickest at this scale.
“Fluence is proud to assist SMC International Energy make its bold imaginative and prescient of a cleaner, extra resilient grid within the Philippines a actuality,” mentioned Jan Teichmann, Fluence’s common supervisor for the Asia Pacific area. “Our workforce, which has pioneered new markets and functions for power storage to make it a trusted element of contemporary electrical grids all over the world, has labored carefully with SMCGPH to develop the vary of ancillary companies batteries are offering, paving the way in which for a really reworked grid within the Philippines in only a few years’ time.”
The 2 20 MW techniques already commissioned and examined by NGCP are in Kabankalan within the province of Negros Occidental, and in Malita within the province of Davao Occidental, respectively. Extra 20 MW techniques will start commissioning shortly together with an growth of the already-deployed Masinloc undertaking — tripling the Masinloc undertaking website’s power storage capability — and a 20 MW system in Maco, within the province of Davao de Oro.
Fluence will proceed deploying the remaining power storage techniques for SMCGPH throughout the Philippines by means of July of 2022. With this record-setting deployment, SMCGPH is strategically siting power storage tasks throughout the Philippines’ energy community to make it stronger and extra resilient, making ready the nationwide grid to accommodate increased ranges of renewable power adoption and taking the Philippines into the management place in clear power deployments in Southeast Asia.
