GridSolv Quantum energy storage system

Optimised for flexibility, functionality and safety

GridSolv Quantum is a fully integrated and modular energy storage system. Compact and minimalist in design, it ensures the lowest lifecycle costs and the smallest system footprint, plus minimised scope and complexity of EPC activities across locations and market applications.

The optimised energy storage system comprises the following main parts:

  • Battery enclosure with pre-installed liquid cooled battery racks and all sub-systems such as HVAC
  • AC and DC outdoor rated cabinet, which interfaces battery strings with the inverter and provides an interface for auxiliary power and communications
  • Interconnection busbars and cables

GridSolv Quantum to help lower U.S. city’s electricity costs

The City of Martinsville is the first to have access to Wärtsilä's just released next-generation GridSolv Quantum. AEP-Martinsville will balance the grid and build greater resiliency Southeast U.S.
