Trina Storage Partners With Obton to Deliver Elementa Energy Storage Systems in Germany

  • The project will provide over 35 MWh of storage capacity, allowing Obton's Tangermunde BESS project to provide grid support and arbitrage services in Germany.

Trina Storage, the leading global energy storage solution provider, has signed its first contract in Germany, establishing a project with Obton to install over 35 MWh of storage capacity in Tangermünde in the Saxony-Anhalt region. 

Trina Storage will deliver its Elementa cabinets, alongside Power Conversion Systems from Power Electronics and the associated software and controls, to Obton’s Tangermünde site. The project has been originated by Kyon Energy who will continue to jointly handle general contracting through to turnkey commissioning of the battery storage facility, due in the fourth quarter of 2024. Once operational, the project will provide arbitrage and grid support, including primary and secondary control power. The Tangermünde project is part of a comprehensive framework agreement between Kyon Energy and Obton.

Trina Storage Elementa is a modular and fully integrated smart storage solution, tailored for grid-scale installations. It includes advanced safety features, such as liquid-cooled LFP batteries, fire suppression systems and configurable multi-level battery management systems.
