Energy storage provider receives largest ever order from data centre sector

The energy storage provider, INTILION, has received the largest order in the company’s history from PASM Power and Air Condition Solution Management GmbH (PASM), a fully owned subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom. Energy storage facilities with a total capacity of around 60 megawatts per hour (MWh) will be installed at Telekom locations, with commissioning planned to take place by the end of 2023.

“The order from PASM is another important milestone in the company’s development. We have not only received our largest order for large-scale storage systems so far from a well-known customer, but also successfully entered the important market of energy storage systems for the telecommunications industry and data centres,” Dr. André Haubrock, CEO of INTILION AG, said. “We expect a high demand for energy storage systems in these sectors in the next few years – especially due to the switch to electricity from renewable energies. We have already made preparations to take on an important role in this market as well.”

The INTILION scalecube large-scale storage units are to be used at three locations for frequency balancing and balancing services. The installation will be front-of-the-meter. Energy storage systems with a capacity of around 26 MWh are to be installed at each of the two locations in Hanover and Bamberg, and a further six MWh at the Münster location. Trial operations will start in the third quarter of 2023 and will transition to regular operations by the end of 2023.

So far, INTILION has sold its large-scale storage solutions mainly to utilities. With the order from PASM, INTILION is now developing new industries as customer groups for the INTILION scalecube large-scale storage systems, which can be installed with a capacity of up to 100 MWh. With advancing digitalisation, additional data centres with large power requirements are needed worldwide. This opens further potential in the already rapidly growing market for energy storage systems. With energy storage systems, the share of renewable energies for electricity consumption can be increased and thus the transformation to ‘green data centres’ can be advanced.
