Redflow completes installation of its biggest zinc bromine flow battery to date

Fri, 01/07/2022 - 09:32 -- Paul Crompton

Flow battery firm Redflow has completed installation of a 2MWh energy storage system for Anaergia in California, US— the Australian firm’s largest single sale of zinc bromide batteries to date.

The energy storage system is designed to reduce peak energy use at clean energy, fertilizer, and recycled water company Anaergia’s Rialto Bioenergy Facility as part of a microgrid. 

The system comprises of 192 zinc-bromine flow batteries, housed in 12 160kWh Redflow Energy Pods and clustered into four strings tied to four 125kW Dynapower inverters.

The microgrid project, funded in part by a grant from the California Energy Commission, consists of the batteries, a biogas conditioning system to support a 2MW biogas-fuelled cogeneration unit and a microgrid control system.

Each of the four battery strings have been successfully charged and discharged and have passed critical acceptance testing criteria. 

The final test of the system will be in January when Siemens plans to integrate the battery into the microgrid controller and the facility can absorb the entire 2MWh load.

Redflow storage sures up electric supply for Thai village

Mon, 02/18/2019 - 00:00 -- Hugh Finzel
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.
