Hayward, California, UNITED STATES

HAYWARD, Calif., Sept. 11, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today Primus Power (“Primus”), a leader in stationary energy storage systems, announced a partnership with OSIsoft, LLC to integrate the PI System in the EnergyPod 2. The PI system is used by over 1,000 leading utilities, 95 percent of the largest oil and gas companies and increasingly in energy storage. Primus’ stationary battery systems serve the energy storage needs of corporations and utilities. With a five-hour duration and lab-certified 20-year life, EnergyPod 2 delivers a total cost of ownership up to 50% less than conventional lithium-ion battery systems.

“Our customers want to monitor the performance of their energy assets including Primus EnergyPods,” said Hossein Kazemi, Primus Power’s VP of Systems Engineering. “The PI System allows us to do this in an efficient way versus just reacting. PI gives us the connectivity, the backbone and the tools that are recognized in the industry as cyber secure, robust, and developed. It gives us immediate credibility on our service proposals. Customers will have the ability to run automated reports and access views on all their devices.”

The partnership with OSIsoft highlights Primus robust growth. The company expects to have a fleet of over several hundred modular EnergyPod systems installed in the next year in multiple countries including US, China, France and South Africa.

“Energy storage will transform the power business, and the distributed nature of it creates challenges for utilities, technology providers and customers. Storage means tracking more data streams and conducting predictive analytics over a wider range of assets around the clock,” said Kevin Walsh, Industry Principal, OSIsoft. “By working together with Primus, we can optimize performance and accelerate the economics of this growing market.”
