Cegasa presents new modular and scalable battery for C&I applications

The new EScal HV offers installations of between 17 kWh and 350 kWh using a stackable system that allows up to 15 modules to be placed in series, and four strings in parallel.

Spanish energy storage specialist Cegasa presented EScal HV, its new modular and scalable battery, at Intersolar. The company claims that the new solution will respond to an unmet demand for high voltage systems at an industrial and commercial level.

The new system offers installations of between 17 kWh and 350 kWh using a stackable system that allows up to 15 modules to be placed in series, and four strings in parallel.

The minimum string consists of three modules with a total capacity of 17 kWh and a nominal voltage of 173 V. The maximum string features 15 modules, whose capacity is 86 kWh and nominal voltage of 864 V.

It allows connecting up to four strings in parallel per system with 60 modules, which allows expanding its capacity up to 344 kWh.

The nominal power of the basic string (three modules) is 9 kW; it weighs 175 kg, and measures 706 x 375 x 870 mm.

The recommended operating temperature range is 15-30º, and the operating range is between -5 and 45º.

Its efficiency is, according to the manufacturer, more than 98%.

Cegasa says the plug-and-play solution offers fast and secure connections without the need for additional tools, and highlights its safety: it is lithium iron phosphate technology with a pre-charge system and integrated circuit breaker.

It has intelligent control with a string management system, and is compatible with the main inverters on the market.

The company told pv magazine that the new EScal HV will be available “shortly” and orders can be placed now.

In addition, Cegasa presented the third generation of eBick at Intersolar. Its eBick range of industrial lithium ion batteries was launched on the market in 2018 with the aim of covering the energy storage needs in industrial self-consumption, support for electric car charging, rural electrification or the development of energy communities.

In 2021, the second generation of eBrick was launched with an increased energy density of up to 40%, in addition to other improvements.

The latest version will be launched in the last quarter of 2024 and incorporates “higher security and energy management standards, optimising the customer’s installation experience and extending the life of the storage system,” the company says.
