Fluence completes 40 MW of 470 MW energy storage system in the Philippines

The first two 20 MW / 20 MWh is only the first wave of 13 energy storage projects.

Siemens-backed energy storage technology, services and software company Fluence has completed commissioning two 20 MW / 20 MWh battery-based energy storage systems in the Philippines for San Miguel Corporation Global Power Holdings Corp (SMCGPH). 

The initial projects represent the first wave of an energy storage portfolio totaling 470 MW / 470 MWh across 13 project sites that SMCGPH has contracted Fluence to supply and maintain.

Fluence said that SMCGPH’s battery-based energy storage portfolio is considered the largest such procurement to date in Southeast Asia.

SMCGPH and Fluence collaborated to develop a standard-sized 20 MW “building block” using Fluence’s energy storage technology. Working with an established, bankable energy storage technology provider enabled SMCGPH to quickly roll out state-of-the-art systems built on lessons learned from Fluence’s many years of global deployment experience.

The two 20 MW systems are located in Kabankalan in the province of Negros Occidental, and in Malita in the province of Davao Occidental. Additional 20 MW systems  will begin commissioning shortly including an expansion of the already-deployed Masinloc project — tripling the Masinloc project site’s energy storage capacity — and a 20 MW system in Maco, in the province of Davao de Oro

The full portfolio is targeted to be delivered and commissioned in 2022.
