China’s Guangdong Nuclear Power Corp (CGNPC) awarded the contract for their largest high-power, high-capacity battery back-up stations to date, to BYD Ltd of Shenzhen who won the bid. A “National Energy Application Technology Research and Engineering demonstration project”, CGNPC plans to couple these 3.5 Mega-Watt-hour back-up batteries with their nuclear power stations to deliver power up to 2.5 MW levels. The energy storage station will serve as an emergency power source to safeguard workers and protect station equipment from being damaged in extreme conditions where the nuclear plants may lose their electrical supply.
