At this year’s smarter E Europe, we have showcased our cutting-edge products, full-scenario solutions, and sharing our landmark projects.

HyperBlock III 

HyperBlock III is a 5MWh integrated ESS for utility-scale application. It utilises intelligent liquid cooling technology to ensure optimal performance of the battery and PCS throughout the life cycle, effectively extending battery life. The system also saves costs by reducing auxiliary power consumption through intelligent thermal control strategies. The integrated structure significantly reduces commissioning time.

Meanwhile, the single-side opening design provides flexible installation options, optimises space utilisation, and reduces operations and maintenance (O&M) workload. Its high capacity of up to 5MWh and increase in energy density makes the system highly cost effective and competitive in energy storage applications.

Liquid-cooling pack  

This pack has features including high capacity, high safety, long lifespan and easy maintenance: 

  • The long-life, high-capacity 314Ah cells, with an integrated ultra-long liquid-cooling battery pack design, providing a capacity of 104.5kWh per pack  
  • 3D thermal propagation barrier design, offering safety that surpasses UL9540A standards  
  • Up to 59 NTCs inside pack, with monitoring rate >50%  
  • Integrated liquid-cooling lower enclosure and micro-channel variable-diameter cooling technology, achieving a cell temperature difference within 2° Celsius, thus extending the battery’s lifespan  
  • Integrated electrical component connection panel significantly enhances the reliability of electrical connections and ease of maintenance

HyperCube II  

HyperCube II is liquid-cooling outdoor cabinet for multiple C&I applications. It controls risk at the source with AI-enabled smart alert technology, while multi-level electrical protection cuts off potential threats in milliseconds. Its three-dimensional fire prevention design, combined with a full range of safety measures, ensures the stable operation of the system. 

HyperCube II has a high conversion efficiency of over 91% and supports plug-and-play and seamless parallel expansion to meet the needs of rapid deployment and flexible adaptation.   

With intelligent balancing algorithms, the system can maintain stable performance in various extreme environments with a lifespan of over 12 years. In addition, its intelligent monitoring function supports multiple operation modes and provides Web/APP real-time monitoring and remote wireless control, which perfectly fits the needs of multi-scenario integrated energy applications.  

HyperCube Pro   

HyperCube Pro is a new power system that integrates charging and energy storage functions. Charging stations can be over-equipped by one to two times under the same transformer capacity, which significantly improves the charging capacity of the station and slows down the need for transformer capacity increase. The system employs energy storage for peak shaving and valley filling, which not only improves the charging efficiency of the station but also realises peak and valley arbitrage and related subsidy benefits.  

In addition, the built-in solid-state battery, combined with AI intelligent warning and three-dimensional fire detection technology, provides all-around electricity security for the charging station. HyperCube Pro supports six major applications (peak shaving and valley filling, demand control, station capacity expansion, virtual power plant, reactive power regulation and backup power supply), realising the diversification of income, showing excellent performance and broad market prospect.  

Can you talk through your digital intelligence (digital and intelligent) service and delivery capability? 

With more than a decade dedicated to ESS with founders’ technological expertise, we are capable to offer all-scenario solutions for the energy 3.0 era empowered by AI technology.

We achieve intelligent operation and management through the smart energy operation management platform. We use AI algorithms to systematically optimise the efficiency and lifecycle of power stations, reduce safety risks, and increase the asset value for clients.

Through experience of more than 300 projects in the past decade, HyperStrong has accumulated 100TB of battery cell test evaluation and system operation data through the design and operation project capacity of more than 15GWh, and it is growing at a rate of 1TB per day.

Through the mining and application of data from the full lifecycle of ESS, HyperStrong has established the technological leadership of “digital energy storage”:

  1. A very complete layout of energy storage system software and hardware products
  2. An underlying architecture based on full life cycle big data drive and AI technology to improve system performance
  3. Iterative optimisation of core technologies such as digital modelling using a large amount of operating data

These technological leaderships systematically improve the safety, reliability and economy of ESS. 

Over the past year, we have built dedicated local service teams in Europe, North America and Australia. In addition, O&M centres and spare parts warehouses are under construction in countries including Germany and the US. 

Can you give an overview of your achievements in the past: 15GWh+ operational, the world’s top five, China’s top, 300+ projects?  

Founded in 2011, HyperStrong has built itself into a global leading energy storage system integrator and system service provider, providing one-stop solutions and services, including energy storage power station development, design, integration, and operation. 

According to S&P Global, HyperStrong is among the top five BESS integrators worldwide in terms of projects installed as well as total pipeline as of July 2023.  Based on the ranking of EESA (Electric Energy Storage Alliance), HyperStrong has been consecutively ranking the No. 1 ESS integrator in the Chinese market from year 2021 to 2023.

Participating in more than 300 ESS projects in total, with more than 40 projects with 100MWh scale or above, around ten projects with 500MWh scale or above, and participated in China’s first GWh level ESS project, which has been completed and connected to the grid, HyperStrong has garnered massive project delivery experiences.  

All in all, we bring the following values to our customers: 

  • Safe, reliable and efficient solutions proven by practice
  • AI-enabled ESS technical expertise
  • Localised support & service
  • Efficient and flexible one-stop customisation
