January 29, 2020

 

  • a collaboration to provide customers with all-in-one ready-to-use containerized energy storage systems for commercial and industrial environments 
  • a configuration that enables flexible placement and can be deployed quickly to expand existing power capacity or incorporated into greenfield facilities
  • a scalable design through interconnection and parallel placement of 20 ft containers
  • An optimized, safe and reliable design for energy storage use with proprietary battery management system
  • a multi-usage system that enables PV self-consumption, peak shaving, load shifting, back-up power, electric vehicle charging station integration, frequency regulation and voltage regulation

 

MORGES (SWITZERLAND) ... Power management leader Eaton and the technology expert in high-quality energy storage module solutions Enico, have joined forces to make it easy for facility managers and operators to quickly deploy energy storage systems in commercial and industrial environments.

Commercial and industrial facility managers and operators are keen to install energy storage systems locally to ensure business continuity, maximize the consumption of the renewable energy they may produce locally, reduce energy costs through peak shaving or integrate electric vehicle charging stations while limiting disruption for their buildings. But they may not want to go through additional civil and constructions works, or their building internal space may not allow the installation of an energy storage system within the building itself.

There is therefore a growing need to provide them with an energy storage solution that minimizes the use of internal building space, enables flexible placement and is quick to deploy. 

xStorage Container, an all-in-one, ready-to-use containerized energy storage solution that fits a wide range of applications

xStorage Container leverages the award-winning energy storage technology from Eaton and the unique module integration expertise from Enico to provide customers with a scalable, modular and fully integrated containerized energy storage solution that is easy to install and quick to deploy on site.

xStorage Container is a multi-usage energy storage system that provides customers with a wide range of applications such as seamless islanding for reliable back-up power, peak shaving, load shifting, frequency regulation and voltage regulation. Customers can also leverage the energy storage system to maximize solar self-consumption and smoothly integrate electric vehicle charging stations onsite while ensuring grid stability for their buildings. 

Craig McDonnell, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Power Quality and Electronics and Emerging Markets Division, EMEA at Eaton said: “We already offer a wide range of scalable and modular energy storage systems. The launch of xStorage Container in collaboration with Enico enables us to further meet the needs of our customers who want to leverage our award-winning energy storage technology quickly with limited disruption for their buildings.”

Marko Lähteenmäki, CBO, Enico said: “We develop unique and comprehensive integrated energy storage module solutions that utilize the best power electronics, battery storage and control technologies on the market. Our collaboration with Eaton enables us to further meet the needs of our customers with a combined solution from two technology leaders.”

Eaton and Enico are showcasing their combined offer at Tampere Smart City at the booth #3.
