The GridEdge transportable energy storage trailer and units are a smart energy storage solution that uses a rechargeable Sodium Nickel Chloride battery technology designed to store energy to replace the use of diesel generators at building sites, festivals or events.

 

Using breakthrough technologies and advanced stored energy equipment, we offer a range of turnkey silent operating, non-carbon generation, environmentally safe and secure electrical systems to address the growing need for secure energy supply.

 

No Carbon generated, Silent Operation, No Fumes,

 Wide Operating Temperature Range. -20°C to +60°C

 Batteries Recent advances in battery technology have helped the successful development of pure electric transportable energy storage units. The GridEdge Energy storage trailers and containers use FIAMM's Sodium Nickel Chloride battery units, giving it unprecedented safe, reliable, energy storage capacity and operational range. The Swiss-made SoNick batteries use sodium nickel chloride technology, with their benefits including: • Designed for long life and reliability • Not affected by external temperatures • Can be stored indefinitely fully charged • Lightweight • High energy and power density The Sodium Nickel Chloride used in GridEdge Energy storage trailers and containers are virtually maintenance free, and this will result in significant cost savings. The unique battery management interface ensures that the batteries system can’t be damaged by inappropriate operation or charging protocols. Unlike other batteries available for electric storage, these controlled temperature batteries operate without loss of performance or life expectancy in virtually any conditions.
