Canadian Solar continues to focus on its energy storage product portfolio. E-STORAGE, which is part of the company’s majority-owned subsidiary CSI Solar Co., announced the launch of SolBank 3.0, the latest iteration of its utility-scale energy storage system.

SolBank 3.0 provides power up to 2.35 MW and capacity of 5 MWh. The 20-ft container includes high energy density cells, a safety system, smart liquid cooling, and active balance system controls.

“In addition, our e-STORAGE team also provides value-added services, such as system capacity maintenance and augmentations, operation and maintenance, and plant optimization,” says Colin Parkin, President of e-STORAGE.

When compares to SolBank 2.0, SolBank 3.0 provides up to a 45% increase in product-level capacity, and up to 40% decrease in commissioning time.

SolBank 3.0 is equipped with a pack and electrical redundancy protection system, smart abnormal performance detection, multi-level fire alarm, and suppression protection, all of these ensuring product safety.

At the same time, the thermal management system reduces auxiliary power consumption by up to 30% compared to the previous generation. SolBank 3.0’s flexible and modular design is compatible with different power conversion systems (PCS).
