Historic moment as flow battery and vanadium companies signs MoU

US flow battery maker Vionx Energy has entered into a nonbinding memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Canadian vanadium producer Largo Resources.

The MOU outlines the principal terms upon which Vionx will base a final deal in which it will use Largo’s vanadium electrolyte in its Vanadium Redox Battery (VRB) systems.

Yellow Rock undergoes name change as it ups vanadium focus

Yellow Rock undergoes name change as it ups vanadium focus

An Australian vanadium supplier has identified so much potential in the supply of vanadium for electrolytes that it has changed its name to reflect its future direction.

Formerly Yellow Rock Resources, the company now called Australian Vanadium is pushing exploration in the remote Gabanintha area in Western Australia, where there is a sizeable deposit of vanadium.

Although Australian Vanadium has copper, gold and uranium prospects in Australia, vanadium has become its priority

The company has hired Emeritus Professor Maria Skyllas-Kazacos of the University of New South Wales for her expertise in assessing the global market for vanadium electrolyte and to identify the best way to process the material for this market.

Skyllas-Kazacos was instrumental in inventing the all-vanadium redox flow cell battery in 1985, and has continued developing the technology at the University of New South Wales (UNSW).

She oversaw the installation of the Gildemeister Cell Cube 130kWh vanadium flow battery on the campus earlier this year, which was the first major installation of a large vanadium redox battery in Australia.

Imergy flow battery

US-based flow battery developer Imergy Power Systems (Imergy), known as Deeya Energy, has introduced a vanadium flow battery that costs $300/kWh.

According to Imergy, the 50kW battery comes with a minimum 20-year cycle life and can store up to 200kWh of electricity. The storage duration can be extended by increasing electrolyte concentration and volume. The ESP30 battery can be used at up to 131°F (55°C).
