ABB has signed a cooperation agreement with Sweden-based energy storage company SaltX Technology to enable the development of a stable and scalable control system for EnerStore, a large storage development for the commercialization of nanocoated salt technology innovations.
ABB’s scope of supply for the initial pilot includes automation and control systems, motors and drives systems, process instrumentation and smart electrification, with potential to scale up the solution for industry customers.
SaltX’s unique technology allows salt to store power with a high energy density in a bulk material, which means it could scale to hundreds of megawatt (MW) hours, becoming a circular and sustainable energy storage solution for suppliers and customers across industries such as pulp and paper, metals and manufacturing.
The innovative nanocoating, developed by SaltX over 15 years, makes it possible for systems to have a long lifetime, enabling customers to energize the storage when the electricity price is low and use the stored energy when prices are high, fulfilling their mission to help society shift to sustainable energy.
SaltX and ABB will begin the cooperation in 2021 with the goal of installing the first joint system in the Luleå pilot.
