The site will also help integrate Flexinverter and Flexreservoir with Flexiq, a product from GE’s newly launched Flex portfolio. Flexiq is a digital platform that provides design, operation and fleet management to enable grid compliance and maximise customer value.
Flexreservoir is a system-integrated battery energy storage and power electronics solution for multiple configurations and market applications. Flexinverter is a containerised solution that delivers a plug & play, factory integrated power conversion platform for utility scale solar and storage applications.
The site is centrally located and connected to national highways, airports, and seaports. The factory will be able to fully produce and integrate systems at the site, which reduces the time taken at site and helps create more value for customers.
