MILWAUKEE, WI--(Marketwired - Jul 13, 2016) - EnSync, Inc. (NYSE MKT: ESNC), dba EnSync Energy Systems, a leading developer of innovative energy management and energy storage systems for the utility, commercial, industrial and multi-tenant building markets, today announced the shipment of a fully-integrated utility scale energy storage system (ESS) to Lotte Chemical in South Korea.
The 500kWh energy storage system, engineered for utility scale and large commercial energy applications that typically require four or more hours of discharge, includes EnSync Energy flow batteries and the power electronics required to provide up to 250kW of AC power. It includes the company's state-of-the-art DC-DC converters and proprietary Auto-Sync DC-Bus control platform.
EnSync Energy formed an integrated design-build team with Meineng Energy, its Chinese joint venture company, to engineer, source, manufacture, and test the system. The system is being delivered from Meineng Energy's production site in Wuhu, China.
"The shipment of this 500kWh utility ESS system is important to EnSync Energy as it validates our capability to design, manufacture and deliver utility scale modules that are scaled from our systems operating in commercial and industrial applications," said Brad Hansen, EnSync Energy President and CEO. "We have built an unmatched portfolio of products and services for distributed energy generation systems, in addition to control platforms that seamlessly connect these systems to utilities or grid operators."
This 500kWh system is the culmination of the company's research and development agreement with Lotte Chemical, and is to be commissioned in the company's first quarter of FY 2017.
