Parker Hannifin has completed work on an energy storage project in Chile.

The 20 MW AES Gener Cochrane energy storage project is in Mejillones, in the Antofagasta region and was developed by AES Energy Storage and AES Gener. 

It will provide spinning reserve and grid reliability services for the Norte Grande Interconnected System, one of Chile’s four separate electricity systems, which primarily supports mining operations in the north of the country.

In addition to this project, Parker’s Energy Grid Tie Division supplied the power conversion system for the AES Gener Los Andes 12 MW installation at the Norgener power station, which has been delivering improved grid reliability since 2009.

The Cochrane project consists of ten 2.2 MVA outdoor-rated 890GT-B PCS and 2 MW energy storage containers and was engineered and built at the Parker EGT division headquarters in Charlotte, North Carolina.
