Skeleton Technologies has unveiled SkelGrid, an energy storage system for industrial power applications, based on the company's curved graphene supercapacitor technology. The system is meant to ensure reliable power quality in manufacturing plants, data centers, and more.
SkelGrid is said to provide the highest power and energy density on the market in the industry standard electrical cabinet or container format. The SkelGrid product family is based on SkelRack modules, which can be installed in industry standard 19, 600mm deep cabinets, and in 20 or 40 ft. containers to provide short-term power at the megawatt level. The SkelGrid family has maximum power ratings ranging from 520 kW up to 1500 kW, and as a modular product, its components can be configured according to customers’ needs.
Skeleton Technologies CEO Taavi Madiberk said: In the semiconductor and electronics industries power quality is of utmost importance. A power outage lasting for under a second can damage all the products on the production line, and the losses are compounded by the unavoidable downtime of clearing the backlog and setting everything up again. On average, our customers face one such event per year....Thanks to our patented Curved Graphene, the SkelGrid product family has the highest reliability and twice the power of competing system on the market to ensure no manufacturing losses or downtime even in the event of short-term power outages. We see from customer experience that SkelGrid can pay itself off by eliminating the issues caused by one single short power outage".
