The largest stand-alone storage power station in China, supplied with HiTHIUM battery products, is set in an industrial park in Zhongwei City in Ningxia. The plant’s containers feature HiTHIUM’s liquid-cooling solution: close to the heat source, providing a uniform temperature and low energy consumption, liquid-cooling is more suitable for outdoor environment than air-cooling. Here, it can achieve a high level of long-term reliability and stability for the energy storage units, reducing the floor area for this power station by 35% and enabling flexible O&M.
Also the first shared energy storage power station in Ningxia, the plant stabilizes the energy supply for local residents. The site can store up to 400,000 kWh of electricity on a single charge.
5. Energy Storage
Location: Wuhua County, Meizhou Province, China
Application: Grid-side stand-alone energy storage project.
Product: 280Ah Cells
Capacity/output: 70 MW / 140 MWh
Expected annual energy generation of 81 million kWh
Delivering an annual CO2 emissions savings of 45,000 tons, the largest stand-alone storage power station in southern China.
The Meizhou Baohu Energy Storage Power Station is located in an industrial park and is the first grid-side, stand-alone energy storage project with over 100 MWh on the China Southern Power Grid.
HiTHIUM’s immersion liquid-cooling technology realizes an iterative upgrade of electrochemical energy storage safety, with a 50% increase in battery heat dissipation efficiency compared to typical methods. It allows a temperature rise of no more than 5 degrees Celsius for battery operation, with a difference of no more than 2 degrees Celsius between batteries. This ensures that batteries operate within the optimal temperature range, prolongs their service life, and improves the safety performance of the energy storage power station.
