Green energy for sports facilities in Békéscsaba

INTILION was selected by INFOWARE to provide an energy storage system of 2.4 MWh lithium-ion battery and 1.2 MW of power for the first urban smart grid project in Hungary. The large-scale storage system is connected to a 1.3 MWp PV solar power plant. The green energy will supply the sports facilities in the Hungarian city of Békéscsaba.

A private 11 kV grid with 11 kV / 0.4 kV transformation will provide local power generation, distribution, storage and consumption within the project. This structure ensures that the sports halls make optimum use of the green energy generated by the PV systems. The public grid connection of the DSO gives the local grid the stability and the missing energy. An additional feature of the Smart Grid is that the battery storage can supply the sports halls with energy in the event of a failure of the public grid, thus ensuring the necessary voltage and frequency stability. Due to the high feed-in of newly constructed solar power plants in the vicinity, the grid is regularly overloaded. In the event of a grid failure, the systems then switch over to stand-alone operation and supply electricity directly from the solar system and the energy storage system to the surrounding sports facilities, thereby contributing, among other things, to grid stabilisation. A synchronised, so-called seamless switch-back is performed when the public grid is available again.

The battery storage system, which will be installed by the local partner INFOWARE, is based on INTILION’s knowledge and experience and comprises, in addition to the battery modules with 7.61 kWh each, the certified INTILION fire protection rack, smoke extraction and filtering, as well as the INTILION Control and INTILION Battery Unit and air conditioning. The safety of lithium-ion was of particular importance, as fire protection and smoke gas filtering are particularly important in highly frequented and urban areas. INTILION is at the forefront of this with a certified module-based fire protection concept.

Our partner INFOWARE Zrt. designed the entire microgrid and will implement it.

The entire Smart Grid is controlled and monitored by the Smart Grid Center developed by INFOWARE. It consists of data acquisition, storage, SCADA and the visualisation and control of historical data. The modules for production and consumption forecasting and optimisation use artificially intelligent solutions. An additional 3D visualisation is being developed for the visitors in the visitor centre.

INTILION is proud to be part of this project and to have realised this lighthouse project in Hungary with INFOWARE as a strong partner.
