Just a week after buying up the technology from energy storage company Spider9, California-based battery firm Pathion has announced the beginning of its drive to bring three modular energy storage platforms to market.
Under the name PATHION Power, the company has revealed three storage platforms with integrated lithium-ion batteries in which each cell is used to maximum capacity on a dynamic basis.
Unlike other systems, which need shutdown to replace whole banks of cells when one cell fails, Pathion Power’s ESS automatically reconfigures individual problem cells without loss of power.
The system also allows for advanced chemistries and applications to be added in the future.
Pathion chairman and CEO Mike Liddle said deals were being signed with ‘two major global companies’ to launch the technology, but did not say which two.
The ‘family’ of systems from Pathion includes the Power Vault, for small commercial and industrial applications; the Rack Pro, for larger commercial and industrial uses; and the Vault Max, which supports over 1 MWh in a containerized unit and optimizes renewable resources to provide instant back-up power.
