YVERDON-LES-BAINS, Switzerland, 06 October 2021 – Swiss energy storage provider, Leclanché (SIX: LECN) will take part in the ees Europe (electrical energy storage) trade fair from 6 to 8 October 2021. Exhibiting in hall B6, stand 230, the company will present its recently launched new energy storage solution, LeBlockTM, for the first time. The sophisticated building block concept reduces the total cost of ownership, as well as the environmental footprint, through simplified logistics and installation, possible reconfiguration and easy return for recycling at the end of its life cycle. The new battery energy storage solution was also nominated as a finalist in the ees AWARD 2021 competition.
LeBlockTM – easy transport, quick installation, lower overall costs
The LeBlockTM energy storage system consists of a series of 5-foot-wide blocks that can be easily combined through plug-and-play connections. The system includes fully pre-installed battery racks up to 745 kWh including temperature management and fire protection system. In addition, because the blocks are shipped with batteries installed and cables and connectors pre-installed, no site-specific wiring is required. Four blocks, when interconnected, are transformed into a 20-foot ISO container allowing it to be easily transported by rail, ship or truck. There is no packaging waste and no need for additional transport containers. The simplified logistics also open up the possibility of a temporary “Storage-as-a-Service” offer as needed.
System Safety: A Critical Design Element
LeBlockTM has been designed from its earliest concept stage with the highest demands of safety at both a system level as well as for its operators. Its partitioned architecture mitigates against potential fire risk. Beyond that, the system is equipped with several state-of-the-art features to ensure the highest level of safety.
ees AWARD 2021 Finalist
The reduction of the total cost of ownership (TCO), the reduced environmental footprint during transport and the simple possibility of reconfiguration and capacity expansion already impressed the jury of the ees AWARD 2021 in the pre-selection phase of judging. Leclanché was nominated with LeBlockTM as one of 10 companies for the award.
