Wärtsilä to build 90MW energy storage system in SEA

The project will bring Wärtsilä’s total storage portfolio in SEA to 300MW.

Finnish Wärtsilä will build a 90MW energy storage system in SEA, proving to be a key player in the ramping up of storages in the region. 

The system includes Wärtsilä’s GridSolv Max, a standardised solution that gives flexible and modular storage for core hardware assets within Wärtsilä energy storage systems, including batteries, a safety and fire system, and inverters, a media release said.

Wärtsilä’s GEMS smart energy management system utilizes AI and machine learning to maximise system flexibility, resiliency, and functionality. It’s also capable of managing all flexible generation system assets, allowing for seamless integration between generation and storage, in addition to regulating frequency and closely monitoring every aspect of the system.

Meanwhile, amidst exponential energy demand growth, SEA struggles to meet its renewable energy goals whilst inching closer to becoming a net importer of fossil fuels for the first time.
