Sungrow, an inverter manufacturer, has announced that it would provide storage solutions to Tata Power Solar Systems’ (TPSSL) 60.56 MWh battery energy storage system (BESS) project in Phyang in Ladakh’s Leh region.
Sungrow stated that because the plant is located at 3,400 meters above sea level and under tough geographic circumstances, all equipment and gadgets will be installed quickly.
Peak power management is supported by the energy storage system that will be installed in Ladakh. Sungrow’s entire photovoltaic plus BESS solutions, comprising the sophisticated bidirectional power conversion system and the Liquid-Cooled Energy Storage System ST2752UX, will be used by Tata Power.
Sungrow has now delivered around 13 GW inverter shipments in the Indian market. Moreover, it also has a manufacturing presence with its 10GW facility at Bengaluru.
Tata Power won the SECI auction for a 20 MW solar power project in March 2021, which also required a 50 MWh battery energy storage system to be installed in Phyang. The awarded project cost around $3.86 billion ($51.97 million).
The engineering, procurement, and construction estimate for the project was around $3.68 billion ($49.52 million). The cost of operating and maintaining the 20 MW solar plant for 10 years was determined to be 181.71 million ($2.44 million).
The project is one of the largest energy storage projects in India to date.
