The Tonga I projects is the first large-scale battery energy storage system to be built at the Popua power station and will thus contribute to Tonga’s 50% renewable energy target.
Like manu island nations, Tonga is driving the shift to renewable energy by adding the Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) to its Popua Power Station. For this project Jema will supply 6 IBX3 inverters integrated in containers.
To continue the change to renewable energy, Tonga II has been launched. For this new project, Jema will be in charge of supplying the IBX6 equipment: a total of 3 IBX6 units of 3 columns each will be supplied.
The IBX inverters will comply with local regulations and the Australian standard AS 4777.2. The IBX3 inverter is a four quadrant system with Statcom mode capability, operating in grid formation or tied grid and fast P and Q variation response and black start capability.
Energy Storage applications
