In cooperation with Nimble energy, C.S.CARGO brings the first high-capacity mobile energy-storage unit to the Czech Republic
At the end of last week, C.S.CARGO delivered to the Czech Republic the first high-capacity battery enabling storage and reuse of electricity. The mobile battery with capacity of 352 kWh, which was introduced by the Dutch manufacturer Alfen at the Intersolar trade fair last year, is a new innovation in the Czech Republic.
C.S.CARGO transported the high-capacity battery to the Czech Republic for the company Nimble energy and its customer CE Energy. The battery will serve to support the storage of electricity and as a power source in the event of unplanned outages. Thanks to its easy handling, the unit can be used according to current requirements as, for example, a more ecological alternative to diesel generators at music and other festivals.
“At C.S.CARGO, we have long striven to support sustainable development. One of the steps in that direction is, for example, annual replacement of the vehicle fleet so that our vehicles fulfil the strictest Euro 5 EEV and Euro 6 emissions norms. Therefore, we are pleased that we could carry out the transport of a battery that will help to overcome current obstacles and push development forward,” says Aziz Jahić, marketing director at C.S.CARGO.
At present, mobile high-capacity batteries are a possible solution ensuring use of energy on a larger scale – in connection with the operations of major companies, supporting the stability of distribution grids and at one-off events. The battery was manufactured in cooperation with BMW, as battery units from BMW i electric vehicles are used within it.
“Demand associated with the development of high-capacity batteries not only for alternative sources of energy is shifting to the Czech Republic. I believe that after returnable plastic beverage cups, which are now part of every larger festival, clean energy sources, such as mobile batteries, will become another feature of those kinds of events,” says Lubomír Kohout of Nimble energy.
