Just saw those posted on Facebook by the Prime Minister of India taken during his recent visit of the Fremont factory.

I think its the first time we've got to see the actual internal of an individual PowerPack module. Its composed of two Model S modules and with some added electronics on the side.

Adding some internals to PowerPack 2 collection.
We can see 15 modules, though homepage mentions 16.
Now if we know we have 2 Model S/X battery modules inside each pod, we get up to 205kWh energy (homepage states 210kWh)
if we assume modules are similar as 100kWh packs have.
I can see glycol loop. Homepage states refrigerant loop as well. Can't be seen here, nor compressor.
Inside the door should be fans and radiators.
Upper left door side we see expansion tank with level sensor and a door safety switch.
Two/three cable conduits get to the door from below. Likely 2xBMS and power for cooling system. We see them
running into the black boxes on the doors where electronics are.
