A major energy rollout in Canada is set for September when Hectate Energy is expected to plug in two separate projects with a total capacity of 12.8 MW/52.8 MWh. The company’s latest push comes from a recent agreement with Powin Energy for the supply of battery energy storage modules and management software.

 

The projects, located in Kitchener and Stratford ON, will use Powin’s Stack140 energy storage system combined with its bp-OS battery management system. The system in Stratford will be housed inside of a newly constructed building specifically designed to support 20 of Powin’s 2 MWh battery arrays. At the Kitchener location, six of Powin’s 2 MWh 40-foot outdoor battery energy storage products will be deployed.

Awarded to Hectate in July 2014 by Ontario’s Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO), its projects are among a total of six that awarded contracts. Combined they will become the largest energy storage deployment in Canada. (For more read an IESO backgrounder HERE.)

"We selected Powin Energy for this project because they are a responsive partner with a history of rapidly delivering fully integrated utility-scale energy storage systems," said Chris Bullinger, president and CEO at Hecate. "Their technology agnostic bp-OS will also enable smooth integration with our top level controls and create a seamless storage system for the IESO."

Powin Energy's Stack140 is a modular and flexible 140kW battery array that is easily and cost-effectively scalable from 125 kW to multiple megawatts using indoor cabinets or 20 or 40 foot containers for outdoor installations.
