RedFlow Systems Ready For NZ Utility Installation

RedFlow electrical utility products, the Power+BOS® LA600 and GenSet KD6 are on display this week in New Zealand in readiness for inaugural deployment with distribution utility Powerco Limited. These units will be used as the core of a stand-alone power system (“SAPS”) for a rural customer.

Representatives of several other utilities gathered to view the systems in a working demonstration.

Addressing these utility managers, RedFlow CEO said “Our packaged energy storage systems, together with the GenSet KD6 represent a cost effective solution for remote installations for utilities operating in today’s environment”.

Mr Winter added “The systems will be further enhanced when we release our proprietary satellite communications package shortly. These will allow low cost and real time monitoring for rural SAPS installations, irrespective of terrain or isolation”.

Powerco is New Zealand’s second largest electricity and gas distribution company. Its network area spreads across the upper central and lower central North Island servicing approximately 400,000 consumers representing 16 per cent of the electricity connections in New Zealand.
