Huawei Digital Power has announced the signing of a key contract with SEPCOIII for its NEOM Red Sea project, which involves 400 MW of PV plus a 1300 MWh battery energy storage solution (BESS), currently the world’s largest energy storage project. The two parties will cooperate to enable Saudi Arabia to build a global clean energy and green economy center.
This 1300 MWh off-grid energy storage project is the largest of its kind in the world and represents a milestone in the global energy storage industry.
The NEOM Red Sea project has been listed as a key element in Saudi Vision 2030. The developer is ACWA Power, with SEPCOIII fulfilling the rôle of EPC. Located on the Red Sea coast, NEOM is dubbed the city of the future, powered entirely by renewable energy. It will lead a new way of life and drive new economic growth, as oil resources are increasingly depleted.
With more than 10 years of experience in researching and developing energy storage systems, in addition to over 8 GWh of energy storage system applications, Huawei Digital Power is committed to integrating digital information and PV and energy storage technologies to build more efficient, stable and safe smart string systems using string, intelligent and modular designs, aiming to help PV become the main energy source for a green and bright future.
