September 25 (Renewables Now) - Nhoa Energy, a unit of Nhoa SA (EPA:NHOA), formerly Engie EPS, on Monday announced the commissioning of a 107-MWh energy storage project at a Chinese plant of Taiwan Cement Group (TCC Group).
Located at TCC Group’s Yingde plant in Guangdong province, the battery is the main part of one of the largest industrial microgrids, Nhoa, which is majority owned by TCC, said.
The battery system works in conjunction with 42 MW of waste-heat-recovery systems and 8 MWp of solar at the cement plant. It will manage the peaks in energy demand and act as a backup for critical equipment. The project will help TCC Group achieve its carbon reduction goals. It also aligns with the Guangdong provincial government’s energy storage development policy and will receive annual subsidies because of that.
Nhoa Energy designed and developed the 43.2-MW/107.3-MWh energy storage system, TCC Group said recently, while announcing the system’s completion.
