Vertically-integrated vanadium firm Largo Resources has appointed Salvatore Minopoli as vice president of operations at its subsidiary Largo Clean Energy.
Minopli will have overall responsibility for commercial development and implementation of the strategic business growth plan at the Canadian company.
Minopoli has developed and executed utility-scale projects in both regulated and merchant energy markets, and most recently served as vice president of UK liquid-air energy storage firm Highview Power.
In April, Largo secured a location for its stack manufacturing and product development center in Massachusetts, US, with an expected annual nameplate manufacturing capacity of 1.4GWh.
The company also approved a location in New Hampshire, US, for its clean energy division’s electrolyte production and manufacturing of containerised vanadium redox flow battery (VRFB) systems.
The Company is progressing with the certification of its VCHARGE± system under UL1973 and UL9540 requirements.
