Redflow expands flow batteries reach in South Africa

Australia-based Redflow is to deploy its ZBM2 zinc-bromine flow batteries at several telecom tower sites in South Africa as part of a six-month test project with mobile network provider Mobax.

Redflow will supply up to 10 of the batteries at its cost for the duration of the project, “with a particular focus on reducing the high cost of running diesel backup generators as well as being a less attractive target for theft”.

Ban Pha Dan

Australia-based Redflow has provided a hybrid battery system coupled with solar energy generation to create a microgrid that will provide a reliable power supply in a remote village in Thailand.

The energy storage system is made up of 10 Redflow ZBM2 zinc-bromine flow batteries— which provide 10kWh apiece— and three lithium batteries. The ZBM2 batteries will provide power to the Ban Pha Dan community school, town hall, and temple, while the lithium batteries will supply energy for individual homes.

Ban Pha Dan is in Lamphun province and is surrounded by a wildlife reserve where power pylons are not permitted, meaning that the village has lacked access to electricity in the past.
