CATL's latest 'Tianheng' BESS claims zero degradation for 5 years -  

CATL recently launched its latest battery energy storage system (BESS) named 'Tianheng' in China to tag the emerging domestic and global ESS markets.

The Pod platform claims to deliver a 50 percent increase in energy density from the Centipede platform, thanks to its upgraded cell capacity and cell-to-pack technology, available for 2-hour or greater system applications.

Safety wise, the new system liquid cooling for stable internal battery system temperatures, and complies with stringent fire prevention standards such as UL9540A, NFPA 68 and NFPA 69, while having optional class-leading fire suppression at module and container level.

The new BESS platform is part of a fully integrated Powin energy storage solution that includes an end-to-end offering, spanning from StackOS software, system design, delivery, to commissioning and long-term service.

Powin's proprietary Battery Management System and Energy Management controls comply with robust localized cybersecurity standards and regulations, ensuring superior protection for data privacy and intellectual property, guaranteeing security of customers' data, operations and investment at all times, according to the company.

Customers who select Pod will benefit from Powin's full authorization to perform long-term services at their site, as well as comprehensive system training from the company. Within a fully integrated solution, Powin delivers safety, availability, insight and flexibility, providing lower risk, enhanced performance and improved revenue generation.

The company claims to have deployed over 17 GWh (including those at construction) of battery storage worldwide and monitoring over six million battery cells till date.
