Saft wins Hawaiian battery supply deal


French battery manufacturer Saft has landed a ‘multi million dollar' contract to supply its Li-ion products for a 12 MW solar park in Hawaii.

The $50 million Anahola park on Kauai will incorporate eight Intensium Max 20 M containers supplied by the Bagnolet-based company as well as two containers hosuing an ABB 6 MW PCS.

The contract, awarded by the Kauai Island Utility Co-operative (KIUC) to Saft, and announced by the Business Newswire agency on Wednesday, is the company's third battery energy storage system (BESS) in the U.S. state.

KIUC is developing the Anahola plant along with the Department of Hawaiian Homelands and the Homestead Community Development Corporation.

Delivery of the battery systems is due to start in October.
