Hawai’i-based Blue Planet Energy has expanded its Blue Ion line of safe, scalable energy storage solutions with the introduction of Blue Ion LX for commercial and industrial (C&I) applications. Blue Planet Energy developed the high-voltage Blue Ion LX system in close collaboration with energy storage integrators who have installed over 10 MWh of commercial systems using Blue Planet Energy technology.
“As we roll out LX with our signature personalized sales and technical support, we are proud to provide another product ‘Powered by Aloha’ and bring the best of the Islands to new markets,” said Blue Planet Energy COO Chris Johnson.
Inside Blue Ion LX
The Blue Ion LX is built on the same fire-safe Lithium Ferrous Phosphate (LFP) technology as the Blue Ion 2.0, which has been field proven since 2015 and sets the bar for lithium-ion safety and reliability. Leveraging experience with more than 100 commercial installations to-date, Blue Planet Energy’s introduction of Blue Ion LX comes in direct response to C&I customers’ desire for quality, scalable and safe high-capacity energy storage in microgrid, critical infrastructure and resilience applications.
The new product uses a modular 64 kWh dual-cabinet energy storage block that scales to system capacities of 2 MWh+ for ease of integration in commercial storage markets, such as those in remote locations or areas with an unreliable grid that demand the most robust and high-quality systems. As with all its solutions, Blue Planet Energy provides services for Blue Ion LX including project design and sales support; component compatibility testing and assurance; system-level component configuration and integration; installation support; and O&M services.
Backed by an industry-leading 15-year performance warranty, Blue Ion LX performs at double the lifespan of competitive solutions with its 8,000 cycle life at 100 percent depth of discharge.
