KORE Power Increases Gigawatt Capacity for Mark 1 Energy Storage System Production

KORE Power provides an update about the manufacturing, assembly, testing and development process for its Mark 1 Energy Storage System in advance of expected production in Q1 2020 and confirms that the Company is on target to produce over 5,000 cells/10 Mark 1 Energy Storage System racks, per day.

COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho, Sept. 05, 2019 -- KORE Power, a leading developer of high density, high voltage energy storage solutions, today provides an update about the manufacturing, assembly, and testing and development process for its Mark 1 Energy Storage System in advance of expected production in Q1 2020.


The KORE Power team met with manufacturing partner, Do-Fluoride Chemicals (DFD), last month at DFD's plant in Jiaozuo, China to enhance the structural design of the Mark 1 solution and review the cell technology and processes for manufacturing, assembly and quality control. The trip was a success and KORE Power anticipates that production of the cells will be at full capacity in February 2020, a full month ahead of schedule.

The findings of this site visit confirmed that KORE Power is on target to produce over 5,000 cells, or the equivalent of ten Mark 1 Energy Storage System racks, per day. Investments in the production lines for the Mark 1 will facilitate the availability of 6GWh of capacity in 2020. Additional capacity is being developed to further increase production availability in 2021 and beyond, as the company ratchets up production to meet future global demand.

Furthermore, the evaluation of the Mark 1 system assembly process revealed some automation and speed of production opportunities. The KORE Power team viewed the newly assembled Mark 1 cell pilot line and toured the new testing lab for the Battery Management System and cells.

Overall, KORE Power reviewed and verified over 40 tests which were performed by the DFD team on both the hardware and software for the Mark 1. All test results were consistent with the expected output by KORE Power energy storage system requirements, demonstrating not only commercial viability but that KORE Power's development program is ahead of schedule.

"We look forward to ramping up production in Q1 2020 to ensure rapid delivery of our systems to a growing list of companies that are very excited about what we've developed," said Lindsay Gorrill, CEO of KORE Power. "KORE is focused on energy storage and we continue to work on enhancements to the Mark 1 system and our own production capabilities. We can maximize the results of those efforts by owning the entire supply chain, which is a concept that will help KORE Power overcome some of the customer service challenges that have plagued other battery manufacturers and their end users."

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
