VONK and BESS
Whatever the application is, the energy management system which monitors battery state and the charging-discharging process is a crucial part of the system. And it is especially this energy management system, or also called battery management system, where we as VONK make a difference and can add real value.
We are able to select and build the best fitting battery energy management system, including the most suited converter technology, for all kinds of applications, up to MWh scale. Furthermore, the type of battery is carefully selected, such that energy can be stored and discharged in the optimal way, both technically and cost-effectively.
We always strive to offer the best fitting overall energy storage solution, taking into consideration required battery capacity, rated power and speed of charging and discharging. Next to this, safety, reliability and environmental conditions are considered as well, and of course the costs.
VONK can install the BESS in existing building or deliver it as a fully containerized plug-and-play solution. This we can do for all kinds of onshore applications, as well as offshore on O&G platforms.
BESS as part of VONK’s containerised Hybrid Power Systems
BESS plays an essential part in VONK’s smart Hybrid Power Systems. Power which is generated by renewables or the back-up diesel generator, if present, is offered to the VONK power management system, which will distribute it to the energy consuming application(s). Excess generated power is stored in batteries to be used later, when not enough power is being generated, e.g. during the night or days when it is windstill. The battery systems used in VONK’s HPS are selected in such a way that energy can be optimally stored and discharged both technically and cost-effectively. We always strive to offer the best fitting solution, taking into consideration all essential aspects, such as required battery capacity, rated power, speed of charge/discharge, safety, reliability, lifetime, environmental conditions and, of course, cost.
