Wärtsilä launches 'Quantum2' high-capacity BESS for large-scale deployment


Battery storage solutions developer Wärtsilä has introduced its latest fully-integrated, high-capacity second-generation BESS product 'Quantum2' designed and optimized for global large-scale deployment. 

The company claims that the new product enables project developers to meet capacity requirements more efficiently and effectively with improved transportation and deployment speed, along with unparalleled safety.

"Quantum2 is purpose-built for large-scale energy storage facilities to support the transition to renewable energy," said Darrell Furlong, Director, Energy Storage Product Management and Hardware Engineering at Wärtsilä Energy. 

"Quantum2 is easily transported by road or by sea and its high energy density means fewer units are needed onsite, making it an ideal product for customers across the globe", he added. 


Wärtsilä launches 'Quantum' high energy, next-gen BESS solution

Wärtsilä has launched 'Quantum High Energy' (Quantum HE), a next-generation energy storage system with advanced safety features and enhanced energy density meant for utility-scale applications.

Conforming to ISO standard for 20-foot containers, Quantum2's streamlined design enables more compact layouts at high site energy densities, according to Wärtsilä. Thermal and humidity management solution maintains a tight control of temperature differences between cells and modules, with customizable hybrid cooling system to reduce auxiliary power consumption, the company adds.

The new product is also flexible enough to include modules from various manufacturers, which allows Wärtsilä to optimize configuration for each project and leverage its supply chains to ensure timely delivery.

Further, Quantum2 leverages Wärtsilä's 'GEMS' Digital Energy Management Platform that operates autonomously to ensure maximum platform flexibility with advanced logic and functionality while delivering seamless software patches and updates across single platforms and fleets.

GEMS also offer a unified communication interface for all Quantum2 components, including streamlined monitoring, control, and performance insights to the battery, safety, and thermal management systems.
