Sungrow has announced that it is to supply a fully integrated 55MW/220MWh Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) to Global Power Generation (GPG) for its 100MWac Cunderdin project in Western Australia.
Sungrow will supply 80 units of its industry-leading liquid-cooled PowerTitan storage system for the project, located some 150km from Perth, which will be Australia’s largest DC-coupled PV and energy storage project. Construction will commence later this year and the project will be operational during 2024, at which point it will be connected to Western Australia’s South West Interconnected System.
Shawn Shi, Sungrow General Manager for the APAC region, commented: “Sungrow has recently supplied to several milestone BESS projects in Australia. This cooperation with GPG further broadens its service to the Australian renewable energy market, delivering industry-leading solutions to more local communities.”
A GPG spokesperson added: “The integration of the BESS with renewable energy projects is key to solidifying and balancing the electricity system during the transition to decarbonisation”.
