France SAFT plans to deploy a lithium-ion battery energy storage system with an installed capacity of 10MW in Bermuda, with an estimated working life of 20 years.

A few days ago, French SAFT stated that it is deploying a lithium-ion battery energy storage system with an installed capacity of 10MW in Bermuda, with an estimated working life of 20 years. The purchaser of the energy storage system is Bermuda Electric Lighting Company (BELCO).

In 2016, the local government of Bermuda enacted a power bill aimed at modernizing the Bermuda power grid. As the only power company in Bermuda, BELCO undertakes the main task of power grid reform.

'The battery energy storage system will be able to respond within a few seconds of the request. This response is three times faster than a standard diesel generator, helping to avoid the usual The load associated with this type of event has plummeted. When the new battery energy storage system goes online, it is expected to save US$2 million in fuel and maintenance costs, while allowing BELCO to provide continuous and reliable power. The battery used in the battery energy storage system is Lithium-ion batteries have a service life of 20 years and can also be recycled.' A BELCO spokesperson said that SAFT won the project through a competitive bidding.

Belco mechanical engineer Stephanie Simons said that these advantages will include reduced wear and tear on existing equipment, and will continue to operate for 20 years, and its investment can be recovered within 4 years.

SAFT will design, deliver and install a 10MW battery energy storage system under a turnkey contract, and it will be built in its container form at the company’s assembly plant in Jacksonville, Florida. This 10MW energy storage system can discharge for 30 minutes and can start within 50 milliseconds after detecting a power generation failure. SAFT will integrate and provide control and monitoring functions, and power conversion equipment and switchgear will be provided by ABB Automation and Engineering. At the same time, a local contractor will install and debug on site.

SAFT is the world's leading design, development and manufacturer of advanced high-tech industrial batteries. It is located in the world in the design, development and production of nickel-cadmium batteries (industrial, large-scale transportation, professional electronics, transportation applications), high-performance disposable lithium batteries and lithium-ion battery systems (widely used in civilian, military and many other end markets) leading position. In addition, SAFT is also a world-class expert in lithium-ion satellite batteries, as well as providing lithium-ion batteries for clean energy vehicles and new technologies in renewable energy storage.

In 2016, in order to meet the needs of Asian customers, SAFT established a production base in Zhuhai, China. In 2018, SAFT announced plans to actively enter the field of new energy large-scale energy storage. In order to focus on the field of energy storage, SAFT ended its 12-year power battery joint venture in October of that year.
