June 26, 2024

Energy storage system provider Trina Storage has signed its first contract in Germany, for a project with Obton to install more than 35 MWh of storage capacity in Tangermünde in the Saxony-Anhalt region.

The project was originated by Kyon Energy who will continue to jointly handle general contracting through to turnkey commissioning of the battery storage facility, due in the fourth quarter of 2024. Once operational, the project will provide arbitrage and grid support, including primary and secondary control power.

Trina Storage said the storage system will include “advanced safety features, such as liquid-cooled LFP batteries, fire suppression systems and configurable multi-level battery management systems”.

Torsten Lauritsen, VP, head of energy storage & power portfolio management at Obton, said: “We are pleased to be working with Trina Storage and the wider Trina Solar group as a tier one provider of energy storage and solar solutions. The business has held this position in the market for more than 25 years and is widely renowned for its high quality, long-term reliability and top bankability. We expect this new project to be a major success.”

Gabriele Buccini, head of utility storage at Trina Storage, added: “Energy storage is increasingly important as the world continues its shift towards renewable energy, so we’re delighted to be working with Obton to deliver this project. This contract in Germany is a significant milestone for Trina Storage, and for the wider Trina Solar group. It’s a true marker of our progress as we continue to expand our storage offerings and capabilities on a global scale, and we look forward to seeing the success that this project brings.”
