Last year, KORE Power broke ground on the KOREPlex in Buckeye, Arizona, where it plans to domestically produce lithium-ion battery cells, modules and packs for the energy storage and e-mobility sectors. Construction will continue throughout 2024, with the facility’s first lines producing battery cells in 2025.
As a bit of a preview for what you can expect, KORE Power launched two all-in-one DC Block products for the energy storage sector this week. KORE is now offering a 750 kWh LFP DC Block and a 1.3 MWh NMC DC Block, which will be built in the U.S. and delivered to site fully assembled.
KORE has already taken orders for the systems from multiple customers which will be delivered in 2024.
“KORE Power’s DC Blocks will help our customers get projects grid-connected, on-time and on-budget, ensuring that safe, clean, reliable power is there when it’s needed,” said Lindsay Gorrill, Founder and CEO of KORE Power.
The DC Blocks are powered by KORE Power cells, and available in NMC and LFP chemistries. The DC Blocks include proprietary purpose-built enclosures, battery management system, HVAC, fire suppression, and additional safety features, designed from the ground up by KORE’s engineering team. For customers in search of AC solutions, KORE’s DC Blocks can be easily upscaled for full turnkey AC solutions.
With KORE’s DC Blocks, customers will receive an energy storage solution designed to site-specific needs and footprints. The DC Blocks will be available in both NMC and LFP battery chemistries using KORE’s lithium-ion cells
“This launch continues our commitment to drive the domestic clean energy economy forward with good manufacturing jobs and products proudly built, monitored, and serviced by our team here in the United States.”
