NEC Energy Solutions (NEC ES), through its exclusive distributor in China, Puxing Energy, continues to increase its market penetration with the commissioning of two 9MW projects for Ray Power. The energy storage systems, owned and operated by Ray Power, are providing frequency regulation for the Hang-Jin and Feng-Run power plants located in Ordos City, Neimongol Province and Tanshan City, Hebei Province respectively. Additionally, NEC has also been awarded a 6MW project by Ray Power that is currently under construction and located in Puzhou City, Shanxi Province.
The recently commissioned Hang-Jin and Feng-Run projects are performing frequency regulation, following an automatic generation control (AGC) signal to provide high performance grid balancing services for the grid. The installations are far faster and more effective at frequency regulation than coal-fired power plants, which are slow and typically provide inadequate service to the grid. By adding energy storage, these power plants are now able to provide superior frequency regulation and improve power plant economics.
The 6MW project in Puzhou City, Shanxi Province, will be providing frequency regulation and is expected to be completed by the middle of 2019.
“Puxing Energy collaborated closely with NEC Energy Solutions to deliver excellent energy storage solutions to Ray Power. The commissioning and commercial operations of these projects have demonstrated once again the safety and reliability of NEC ES’s systems that customers have come to expect,” said Junyong Wei, CEO of Puxing Energy. “We are happy to continue working together with NEC ES to implement energy storage across China.”
“Since China has one of the fastest growing renewables and energy storage markets in the world, our global expansion has been accelerated across the country,” said Steve Fludder, CEO of NEC Energy Solutions. “Our collaboration with Puxing Energy has been instrumental in our success with Ray Power, a leader of frequency regulation services in the market, since we first started working together in 2012. They are an excellent customer and we look forward to working with them in the future as the market continues to grow.”
