Danfoss India opens battery-based EES at its Chennai campus
Danfoss India has announced that it has recently opened India's first privately owned and operated grid-scale battery-based Energy Storage System (ESS) at its Oragadam campus in Chennai to store the excess energy generated by renewables (solar power plant) installed inside the campus.
The ESS has been engineered using Danfoss' sustainable Drives technology, according to a statement.
Jurgen Fischer, President of Danfoss Climate Solutions, Denmark, and Soren Kannik Marquardsen, Minister Counsellor, Regional Coordinator South Asia & Head of Trade Council at the Danish Embassy in India, presided over the inauguration ceremony in the presence of Ravichandran Purushothaman, President – Danfoss India Region & other Danfoss India members.
The energy storage system consists of a Danfoss 250 kW PCS, 270 Kwph SARA battery, a BMS, and an EMS containerized integrated battery energy storage system with a grid-scale technology. The company's grid-scale battery-based energy storage system is a scalable, versatile, dependable, and cost-effective solution.
