TESVOLT storage secures power supply to the world exhibition in Kazakhstan


First world’s fair in Central Asia focuses on a decentralised energy supply

Wittenberg/Astana, 28 August 2017 – The storage system manufacturer TESVOLT has provided a lithium-ion storage system for the first world’s fair in Central Asia. The storage system with an output of 198 kW is being used to increase self-consumption of the power generated by solar installation on the roof of the exposition’s central pavilion. In addition, it provides the exposition with emergency back-up power. The TESVOLT storage system has been operating in the Kazakh capital since June 10 and will remain there after the exhibition.

 

Supplying remote areas with renewable energy

Under the motto “Future Energy: Action for Global Sustainability”, Expo 2017 focuses both on ensuring that people in developing countries have access to a reliable energy supply from renewable sources and on the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy.

“Securing the energy supply in developing countries is a very important topic for us here at TESVOLT. Particularly in regions that lack a well-developed power grid, storage systems can be used to maintain the energy supply, thereby improving quality of life and local economic opportunities”, explained Daniel Hannemann, Managing Director of TESVOLT.

 

International storage projects

In 2016, the Wittenberg company installed the world’s largest off-grid storage system in Rwanda. The system provides the power to supply 2000 people with water. As part of a collaboration with the start-up Africa GreenTec in rural West Africa, TESVOLT uses storage containers to ensure that 250,000 people have reliable access to inexpensive solar energy.

 

About TESVOLT

TESVOLT specializes in commercial battery-storage systems. The innovative company produces various sizes of lithium storage systems with capacities of 10 to 120 kWh. Depending on the desired storage system size, they can be flexibly combined—for example to create a large-scale storage system with a capacity of 1 MWh, which TESVOLT supplies as a ready-to-use container. All storage systems are available with different charging speeds, with customers being also able to subsequently expand the system at any time. Thanks to this modular system concept, TESVOLT storage systems work with any application.

 

TESVOLT was awarded the Hugo Junkers Prize by the German Federal State of Saxony-Anhalt for its battery management system. From 1 August 2017, TESVOLT will also be represented by a new sales office in Friedrichstraße 191 in Berlin, Germany.

About Tesvolt
TESVOLT specializes in commercial battery storage systems. The innovative company from Lutherstadt Wittenberg produces storage systems with the most modern battery cells: prismatic lithium cells from Samsung SDI based on nickel-manganese-cobalt-oxide. TESVOLT storage systems function just as well at low voltage as at high voltage, and can be connected to all energy producers: sun, wind, water, biogas and combined heat and power — on-grid and off-grid.
The TESVOLT commercial storage solutions are manufactured in the first Gigafactory for battery storage systems in Europe at the Wittenberg location.

TESVOLT was awarded the German Entrepreneur Award in 2018 in the category "Rising Star". For the off-grid power supply of an avocado farm in southwestern Australia, TESVOLT received the "The smarter E award" in the "Outstanding projects" category as well as the International Award for Rural Electrification (ARE).
