Saft Unveils New Portfolio of Telecom Batteries

Saft has unveiled a new portfolio of telecom batteries developed to meet the backup power performance, continuity and optimized total cost of ownership, or TCO, requirements of original equipment suppliers and network operators in Brazil's telecoms sector. Saft battery solutions on show on stand A18 cover lithium-ion (Li-ion) and nickel-based chemistries for wireless and wireline applications, both indoor and outside, including: Intensium Flex - high power support for data centers; Evolion- when installation footprint, weight, long life and deep cycling capabilities are critical issues; Tel.X - a maintenance-free solution for on-grid applications; - offering excellent chargeability for off-grid installations powered by solar panels; comprehensive service and support at every stage of a battery system project, from initial enquiry through installation and commissioning to planned through-life maintenance contracts. Intensium Flex is dedicated to data center applications, where it offers high performance and flexibility in a compact footprint that meets the most demanding operational requirements. The system is available in high power and medium power versions. Intensium Flex systems are delivered in a 19-inch rack mount format, integrating Saft's Battery Management Module, safety and communication functions. Saft's Evolion Li-ion 48 V telecom battery modules combine compact size and high volumic energy to deliver the maximum possible performance in a limited footprint - taking up only half the space required by a conventional VRLA (valve regulated lead-acid) battery. Furthermore, Evolion's low weight solves the installation challenges of providing sufficient battery capacity in central offices with limited floor loading constraints. Evolion also offers a unique combination of float charging capability and high cycling performance, ensuring that the battery system has a long service life that matches the telecom equipment it supports. Saft Tel.X nickel-based batteries have been developed to provide an exceptionally long and maintenance-free service life in both wireline and wireless backup power applications, especially in the high temperatures encountered by outside plant in hot regions of the world. Tel.X is also ideally suited for cabinets, fibre optic installations, BTS/BSCs and other equipment deployed in telecom networks and offers the option for a rack system suitable for use in level-4 seismic zones.

Saft Groupe S.A. Announces Sales Results for the Third Quarter and Year to Date Ended September 30, 2014; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Full Year of 2014

Saft Groupe S.A. announced sales results for the third quarter and year to date Ended September 30, 2014. For the quarter sales were €156.8 million compared with €153.2 million a year ago. For the year to date, the company reported sales were €486.9 million compared with €438.1 million a year ago. For the full year of 2014, the company expects sales were €660 million - €680 million and EBITDA of €102 million - €105 million.

Saft Announces New Intensium Max Containerized Battery System

Saft announced Intensium Max containerized Li-ion battery system, with an upgraded 3,000A current capability that delivers 1.8MW power capability in a 20 foot container. The upgraded Intensium Max 20P High Power (IM 20P) is ideally suited to address the ramp rate challenges of renewable energy resources, especially large scale solar photovoltaic (PV) installations, by ensuring the safe, controlled ramp-down of output essential to maintain grid stability. The increasing penetration of large scale PV installations presents a significant challenge for the power grids they feed as their power output can exhibit severe and rapid fluctuations or 'ramping'. For example, cloud cover can cause a 70 to 80% fall in output in only one minute. In weak or islanded grids this rapid drop can cause instability, especially if the frequency fluctuates beyond acceptable limits. Without suitable measures to meet minimal technical requirements (MTRs) for grid connection, PV installations can be subjected to curtailment, which prevents them contributing their full output capacity to the grid. Energy storage systems offer the proven capability to address ramping issues by providing the power support needed for a smooth and controlled ramp-down of PV output, allowing voltage and frequency stability to be maintained. A typical MTR might call for a controlled reduction in output of 10% a minute, so that a rapid 70% loss of output is rendered over 7 minutes. Saft has focused on further increasing the high power capability of its Intensium Max ready-to-install containerized solution that provides a complete, fully integrated battery system comprising Li-ion battery modules, power management and control interfaces, air conditioning and safety devices. Saft has increased the peak current capability of the IM 20P to 3,000 A - a current level believed to be twice that of competing systems of similar size. This provides a usable peak power output of 1.8 MW available for several minutes within the footprint of a 20 foot container, while meeting the frequent charge and discharge cycling profile typical of dynamic grid support applications. The power increase has been achieved by extensive upgrading and redesign of the overall thermal management and heat dissipation measures at the battery module level, supporting the higher current rating while ensuring total safety and reliability over a service life of up to 20 years. The key customer benefit of the IM 20P is that it offers high peak power without the need to increase the energy capability (MWh) and consequent size of the installation. The result is a very competitive solution that enables Saft to meet the application's required power profile within a smaller footprint and volume. The 3,000 A version of the IM 20P is fully engineered and will be delivered in the near future for an active project.
