Redflow is pleased to announce that since commencement of manufacturing of the complete zinc–bromine battery in Redflow’s new Thai manufacturing facility in June, it now has the capacity to consistently produce 90 ZBM2 batteries per month. These batteries are now being shipped to customers in Australia and overseas with production volumes synchronised with customer demand.
Redflow CEO Tim Harris said manufacturing complete batteries from the factory marked an important milestone for the company. “This achievement is underpinned by our ongoing focus on ensuring the consistent supply of quality batteries from this new facility,” he said.
“After rigorous qualification of our manufacturing process during the first half of 2018, we are very happy with the quality of these Thai–made batteries. We have already started shipping these complete batteries to customers in Australia and internationally and we look forward to scaling up production at a rate appropriate to market demand.
“With the establishment of a high quality and consistent manufacturing of the ZBM2 battery we can now confidently work with our customers and channel partners to realise opportunities in the application areas and industries that best suit the unique capabilities of our batteries.”
Redflow’s 10 kilowatt–hour (kWh) zinc–bromine flow batteries are designed for demanding energy storage applications in the residential, commercial & industrial and telecommunications sectors. Marketed as ZBM2 and ZCell, Redflow batteries can scale from a single battery installation through to grid–scale deployments.
Redflow, which sells its zinc-bromine flow batteries through an authorised partner network in Australia and internationally, is focussed on supplying key energy storage markets in Asia, Africa and Australasia.
