Haiti - Technology : Latest generation energy storage at the Champ de Mars
Saft, the world’s leading designer and manufacturer of high-tech industrial batteries, has delivered an advanced Lithium-ion Energy Storage System (ESS) to power lighting and Wi-Fi for the Champ de Mars, the grand public square in Port-au-Prince, Haïti. The contract with Montreal-based Geninov Group, a diversified energy and engineering technology company, was finalized in May 2015.

The Saft ESS, to be installed in the vicinity of the Triumphe Cultural Centre in conjunction with approximately 110kW of solar panels, is comprised of one Intensium® Max 20E energy battery container. The configuration is designed to collect power during sunlight hours and to illuminate the entire Champ de Mars area at night while providing Wi-Fi coverage in the immediate vicinity.

"We are extremely pleased to work with Saft to provide a critical service to the city of Port-au-Prince and the Haïtian people," said Yves Marthone, Chief Operating Officer of Geninov."“Renewable energy technology is one of the most important areas of development for small power networks in remote locations, and we are confident that this project will have an immediate positive impact."

The so-called "Triumphe" project is the first photovoltaic plant developed in Haïti. The power conversion system was supplied by U.S.-based Princeton Power Systems, a global energy technology company serving customers across North America, Europe, Africa and the Caribbean. With an installed capacity of 100kWp designed to match a daily demand of 200 kWh per day, the Triumphe project will provide an assessment for the potential of similar applications supporting renewable energy in Haïti.

The 20-foot Saft Intensium® Max 20E container provides high energy capacity for daytime charging, evening discharge, back-up power and energy shifting.
