Sungrow To Build 760MWh Off Grid Energy Storage in KSA

To create a large-scale 760MWh off-grid energy storage project in Saudi Arabia, Sungrow made a major move in the renewable energy industry. In this endeavor, the company partnered with Larsen & Toubro (L& T) India’s premier EPC provider.

Referring to their successful cooperation on the Neom New City, Mr. T Madhava Das who is the Whole-Time Director & Senior Executive Vice President (Utilities) at L&T spoke of his excitement at the recent collaboration and said, “We are thrilled to work with Sungrow once again on the AMAALA Project”.

Furthermore, this project not only cements friendships between these two organizations but also brings Saudi Arabia closer to achieving its goal of becoming carbon neutral. It represents an important milestone for a nation which has relied heavily on fossil fuels being rich in oil reserves.

Approximately 410 million kilowatt-hours worth of electric power are expected annually with nearly half million tones saved per year through reducing carbon dioxide emissions.

AMAALA energy storage systems

AMAALA, an incredibly large­ area in Saudi Arabia that spans more than 4,000 square kilometers, is set to be filled with SunGrow's energy storage systems. These are being implemented with the goal of sustainability which will allow AMAALA to stand out globally.

Not only does SunGrow plan to provide these, but it also aims to supply 165MW PV inverters. This effort is going to assist Saudi Arabia in reaching its goals on Vision 2030 for renewable energy by using state-of-the-art technologies and SunGrow's extensive knowledge on energy storage systems.

The energy storage system stands to contribute significantly towards enhancing grid stability while at the same time integrating renewable sources of power and ensuring reliable supply of electricity.

It's true that the second largest off-grid energy storage initiative in the world will be the AMAALA project by 2027. This will provide uninterrupted eco-friendly energy 24/7 and won't have any carbon footprint at all.

This supports Saudi Arabia's goal of being carbon neutral because it shows its commitment to turn into a greener energy scene, which should also free itself from reliance on fossil fuels. This effort underscores the Kingdom’s dedication towards cleaner forms of energy and reducing its reliance on oil.

Solar energy AMAALA initiative

For the prestigious AMAALA project, Sungrow will supply 165 megawatt photovoltaic (PV) inverters. These devices are critical in solar power installations because they convert the direct current (DC) generated by solar panels into alternating current (AC) that can be used with the grid.

These inverters are mainly used to maximize energy production, maintain system efficiency and stabilize the grid.The next part of this project includes 160mw/760mwh energy storage systems (ESS) also known as batteries which will store excess electricity produced during sunny hours for use at other times.

It is probable that Sungrow's Energy Storage System (ESS) offerings feature lithium-ion batteries, which are popular for their excellent energy density, extended lifespan, and rapid responsiveness. With a substantial capacity of 760MWh, these solutions guarantee uninterrupted power supply, transforming AMAALA into a self-sufficient location with no carbon footprint.

Most likely, Sungrow’s Energy Storage System (ESS) offerings use lithium-ion batteries known for high energy density, long life span, and quick response time. These products have significant capacity of 760MWh ensuring continuous power supply that makes AMAALA a self-sustained place with zero emissions.

Reclaimed water and green electricity 24/7 for local desalination and wastewater treatment plants will be entirely delivered through renewable resources at the entire development. It should be noted that the scheme will provide over 50,000 employment and contribute more than 11 billion riyals to the GDP of Saudi Arabia
