Canada-based energy storage developer American Vanadium has received an order for the company’s vanadium redox flow battery energy storage system (ESS) CellCube.
Renewables company Newfound Energies contracted American Vanadium to deploy two 30kW to 130kWh CellCube ESS for the integration into a remote microgrid fuel and logistics centre.
This is the first purchase order American Vanadium has received as the North American agent for Gildemeister energy solutions’ CellCubes. The deal is still subject to financing availability.
“This marks an important milestone on our path to commercialisation for the CellCube product line here in North America. We are confident this is the start of a sales program which will grow at an impressive pace,” said American Vanadium president and CEO Bill Radvak.
“We chose the CellCube technology because of its high-capacity and long-duration capabilities,” said Gerry Skinner, president of Newfound Energies.
“We believe the CellCube energy storage system is the world’s only large-format, commercially viable vanadium flow energy storage system,” he added.
The company recently deployed CellCube at the US Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Colorado. In a demonstration project featuring its technology, the company will install an ESS for New York City’s Metropolitan Transport Authority in downtown Manhattan.
American Vanadium owns the only vanadium mine in the US.
