Trina Storage, the vertically integrated battery energy storage solution provider, today announced the official launch of its new product - The All-New Elementa, a flexible, safe and high-performance BESS with up to 25% more cycles and cost savings.
The modular, smart storage solution is tailored for grid scale installations. Fully integrated and prefabricated with state-of-the-art LFP batteries, liquid-cooled thermal management system, battery management system and fire detection & suppression systems, it is optimized for flexibility, smooth installation, and efficient maintenance. Elementa's standardized design and factory-installed configuration helps reduce installation times by up to 70%, leading to lower CAPEX.
Trina Storage is further ramping up battery manufacturing capacity to strengthen vertical integration, lower average cost through economies of scale as well as improve cell performance with better control over production process. These battery cells are produced in the Jiangsu Province, China. The cell manufacturing facility has a capacity of 3GWh annually to be scaled up to several GWh in near future. Trina Storage has also set up an integration base that enables a customizable BESS design with an annual capacity of 5GWh.
At this year's Intersolar Europe, Trina Storage will be showcasing the All-New Elementa & further launching its Next-Gen battery storage solution. Using Elementa, customers can save up to 8% on CAPEX & OPEX. Coupled with 25% increased battery cycling, the total cost of ownership (TCO) is reduced by 25% per MWh compared to Tier-1 market average.
