The plant was built based on the collaboration that was signed in 2019 between MHIET and Calik Enerji Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S. with the goal of developing advanced structure for tailored based demand for Malatya Project and new expanding sales of EBLOX in Africa and neighboring countries of Turkey.(3) Renewable energy can be highly unstable due to changes in the environment and other factors, making it unreliable to power microgrids or minigrids. MHIET developed EBLOX as a solution to this problem, and Calik Enerji showed strong interest in the technology, offered assistance to develop EBLOX and to spread tailored solutions to Turkey, its neighboring countries and Africa etc.
The plant demonstrates how EBLOX can supply power to isolated microgrids, reduce fuel costs, and contribute to decarbonization using renewable energy, and consists of a 120kW solar power system, 150kW/167kWh storage battery, two 34kW gensets, a dummy load device of 300kW, and the control system "COORDY."
Many regions around the world located outside of the grid power network require simple and stand-alone microgrids. At the same time, stand-alone distributed power is increasingly being recognized as a power source in case of natural disasters such as earthquakes, storms, and floods. These factors, along with the worldwide trend toward decarbonization, make renewable energy critical in these areas.
With Calik Enerji's remarkable experience in the targeted regions and MHIET's expertise, both parties aim to promote EBLOX as a strategic solution for carbon neutrality.
