The ESS Container


Container on power station site


Our flexible energy storage systems are designed for indoor and outdoor installation. For hostile outdoor installations, our Tower-based storage systems are placed inside weatherproof, seismic-rated and climate controlled containers able to withstand a variety of conditions. Our containers come in standard 20′, 30′ and 53′ sizes and can also be tailored to fit your specific system and space constraints.

The containers are built to house both small-scale and large-scale energy storage systems, up to multi-megawatt systems. All our systems use the same building block structure of a CODA Core Tower partnered with its own inverter, a redundant architecture that minimizes the possibility of a single point of failure in the system and maximizes reliability. Large-scale systems use a Multi-Tower Power Source Controller to manage the cells across the entire system.
