CleanPeak entered a joint venture and exclusivity arrangement with Powin Energy in 2018. Our plan is to lead the 1-5 MW battery market in Australia. The joint venture allows preferred pricing and production slots for battery systems.
Powin Energy Corporation was founded in 1989 and has its headquarters in Tualatin, Oregon. Powin has developed the modular Stack 140 and scalable Battery Energy Storage System (BESS), which both feature the patented battery pack operating system (bp-OS) software controls. Powin’s core technology is a patented BMS that is integrated with third-party battery cells that are combined in series and parallel to form multiple Stack 140’s, a third-party inverter, a thermal management system, and a containerized or facility enclosure to produce a grid-tied AC BESS. Each BESS can be housed in an insulated and climate controlled 20ft or 40ft shipping container (as pictured above).
To date, Powin has installed more than 70 MWh of projects across Europe, the US and Canada, and has secured a further 95 MWh under contracts to be competed by 2021.
CleanPeak's current contracts allow for the roll-out of 10 MWh of Powin Battery systems, which will be the first Powin systems to enter the Australian market.
CleanPeak Energy entered a joint venture with Galileo Technologies to commercialise stranded gas available in the Australian energy market and deliver to customers' who are not connected to the grid, or are unable to secure cost effective supply. Since 1987, Galileo has been a global reference in modular technologies for both CNG and LNG production and transportation. Its portfolio includes the widest range of compressors and pumps for vehicles and vessels; pipeline boosters and wellhead compressors; and the Virtual Pipeline® system, for gas distribution by road, which can reach remote communities and industries without pipeline network connection.
Virtual Pipeline supply Chain
Using Galileo’s portable LNG compression technology, CleanPeak Energy will be able to extract, condition and compress up to 14 tonnes of natural gas a day (per unit) into LNG from stranded gas wells and distribute the LNG via trucks towing ISO storage tanks to our target customers, where the LNG will be converted back to gas on site via a re-gas module.
Cryobox Portable LNG Production Station
Galileo's Cryobox LNG production station is the backbone of the virtual pipeline concept. Each Cryobox unit can produce up to 14 Tonnes of LNG a day, which equates to approximately 250TJ of energy per year. By utilising this technology, CleanPeak energy will be able to provide (i) a low cost diesel replacement for remote customers who traditionally do not have access to Natural Gas; and (ii) alternate energy supply for smaller customers who have been priced out of the pipeline gas market by the large retailers.
