INTILION, a company based in Paderborn, Germany, is the world’s first manufacturer to offer the option of a fire protection housing for its scalestac indoor commercial energy storage system. The storage expert will present the world first at Europe’s largest energy storage trade fair, ees Europe, in Munich from 11 to 13 May. “We are making our scalestac the safest indoor commercial storage system available on the international market,” explains INTILION product manager Martin Peters.
In the event a cell catches fire, the innovative fire protection housing reliably prevents the fire from propagating to the entire system. Thus, the system fulfils the safety requirements in the German application guide VDE-AR-E 2510-50 for stationary storage systems with lithium-ion batteries. Furthermore, it facilitates the usual coordination with property insurers and fire departments, and also protects against follow-up investments.
INTILION successfully launched the indoor commercial storage system scalestac in Germany, Austria and Switzerland in June 2021. The flexible system for public utilities, municipalities, industrial companies, businesses and farmers can be expanded from 25 kVA to 400 kVA and is available with a capacity from 123 kWh up to 1 MWh. The charging and discharging power can be selected from 0.3C to 2C. As the storage unit is only two meters high, it fits through any standard door and can also be installed in rooms with low ceilings. Whether for peak shaving, increasing self-consumption or e-mobility, the system can be used in a wide range of applications and individually adapted to all customer requirements thanks to its modular design.
“The scalestac is the most economical indoor storage system manufactured in Europe. With our new fire protection option, we ensure maximum safety. We are convinced that we will succeed in becoming one of the largest suppliers in Germany and Europe in the field of indoor commercial storage. Safety is the key factor for the operation of battery storage systems,” says Manuel Schmidt, Director of the Product Line Energy Storage & Solutions at INTILION.
