Saudi Red Sea EPC Project the reliability operation of the COV BESS energy storage system is successfully completed
At 10:15 local time on July 27, the reliability operation of the COV BESS energy storage system of the Saudi Red Sea EPC Project Department was successfully completed, marking the successful conclusion of the COV BESS UCA test.
The Red Sea New City Energy Storage Project mainly includes 6 power stations, among which the COV BESS energy storage system is the largest energy storage project in the entire plant. During the UCA test, the system was stable and operating normally, and all parameters met the design and contract requirements. The indicators were superior to the contract requirements, and the test results were unanimously recognized by the owner and supervisor.
On February 7, 2021, SEPCOIII signed an EPC contract with ACWA POWER for the Saudi Red Sea Public Utility Infrastructure Project. This project is a key project in Saudi's "Vision 2030" plan, and is the first PPP model for public facility construction in Saudi. It is also the first large-scale infrastructure complex project undertaken by a Chinese enterprise in Saudi, receiving high attention from the Saudi government and various sectors of society. The project focuses on clean energy and environmental protection, committed to green and pollution-free energy supply, including modules such as photovoltaic, energy storage, power grid, seawater desalination, water supply network, wastewater treatment, wastewater network, solid waste treatment, communication, and regional refrigeration, including the Red Sea New City Energy Storage Project.
The Red Sea New City Energy Storage Project is located on the coast of the Red Sea in Saudi, with a storage capacity of up to 1300MWh, which can provide power for the Red Sea Tourism Area to rely on renewable energy and achieve complete clean energy off grid power supply. The project is located in Honghai New City, covering an area of 28000 square kilometers and also known as the "new generation city". It is the world's first large-scale commercial utility project that integrates multiple energy complementary systems. In the future, the entire city's electricity will come entirely from new energy sources, and Red Sea New City will lead a new way of life, while seeking to achieve new economic growth points in the increasingly depleted situation of resources such as oil.
