Recently, Sungrow, one of the leading global inverter solution suppliers for renewables, collaborated with Tata Power Solar Systems Limited, India’s leading specialized EPC player, to build India’s largest BESS (Battery Energy Storage System) plant in Phyang, Leh, UT of Ladakh, India. The BESS capacity is up to 60.56 MWh.
This plant is located at a high altitude of 3,400 meters above sea level, where the temperature is very low. In this severe geographic condition, all devices need to be installed quickly and they need to work reliably. Therefore, Sungrow provided a comprehensive PV plus ESS solution; including, high-quality PCS—SC2500UD and the Liquid-Cooled Energy Storage System ST2752UX. This ESS project application supports peak power management.
The Leh project is one of the largest ESS tenders issued by the Indian government agency Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI). This new cooperation with Tata Power Solar Systems Limited also predicts a broader and more varied prospect for these two players in the growing Indian market.
Sungrow now possesses around 13 GW inverter shipments in the Indian market. Moreover, it also owns the 10GW manufacturing capacity at Bengaluru. In the future, Sungrow, in collaboration with industry leaders like Tata Power Solar Systems Limited, will strive to keep providing clean electricity across the country with more innovative solutions.
