Australian flow battery maker Redflow has won a second US$600,000 (A$750,000) order for zinc-bromine batteries for a major energy storage project in the Pacific Islands.
The repeat order, from New Zealand-based Hitech Solutions, comes just a few months after Redflow supplied its ZBM2 batteries for Hitech’s construction of “advanced hybrid energy storage solutions” at a number of telecoms sites.
Australian zinc bromide flow energy storage system firm Redflow has made a series of managerial changes ahead of the first deliveries of its ZCell residential flow batteries.
Redflow executive chairman and shareholder Simon Hackett has been named as acting chief executive officer (CEO).
Australian firm Redflow has opened a battery laboratory to progress its software and to enable its zinc bromide flow batteries to be used with multiple inverters.
The Adelaide based laboratory will develop battery management system software for Redflow’s 10kWh residential battery, which is being launched this month.
