August 5 (Renewables Now) - Fluence Energy Inc (NASDAQ:FLNC) will be making its energy storage products at a new manufacturing facility in Utah so as to better serve the North American market, it said on Thursday.
The energy storage joint venture of US power generation group AES Corp (NYSE:AES) and German industrial conglomerate Siemens AG (ETR:SIE) has partnered with a contract manufacturer to open the new site where the building blocks for its Gridstack, Sunstack and Edgestack products will be made. The plan envisages 75 Fluence Cubes to be initially manufactured every week, which will later reach 150 units.
Shipments from the new production base are intended to be launched in September.
According to Fluence, the expansion of its production beyond Asia will enable it to better serve regional deliveries and cope with ongoing supply chain constraints. “At a time when the energy storage industry has seen increased supply chain disruptions, this production hub will be particularly important in strengthening business continuity and improving flexibility for meeting customer needs,” said Fluence SVP & Chief Supply Chain and Manufacturing Officer Carol Couch.
In the meantime, Fluence is also launching a new operations and maintenance (O&M) service and a product testing lab in Pennsylvania, with the latter due to become operational later this month.
The company has recently opened spare parts hubs in Utah and Ireland, it said.
