Redflow starts battery manufacturing in new Thai factory

By

Australian battery company Redflow has started manufacturing complete zinc-bromine flow batteries at its new factory in Thailand and shipping the batteries to customers in Australia and worldwide.

The publicly listed Redflow (ASX: RFX) says its factory now has the capacity to consistently produce as many as 90 ZBM2 batteries per month and it will synchronise production volumes with customer demand.

Redflow chief executive Tim Harris said manufacturing complete Thai-made batteries from the factory marked an important milestone for the company. “This achievement is underpinned by our ongoing focus on ensuring the consistent supply of quality batteries from this new facility,” he said.

“After rigorous qualification of our manufacturing process during the first half of 2018, we are very happy with the quality of these Thai-made batteries. We have already started shipping these complete batteries to customers in Australia and internationally and we look forward to scaling up production at a rate appropriate to market demand.

“With the establishment of a high quality and consistent manufacturing of the ZBM2 battery, we can now confidently work with our customers and channel partners to realise opportunities in the application areas and industries that best suit the unique capabilities of our batteries.”

Redflow says its 10 kilowatt-hour (kWh) zinc-bromine flow batteries are designed for demanding energy storage applications in the residential, commercial and industrial and telecommunications sectors.

Marketed as ZBM2 and ZCell, the batteries can scale from a single battery installation through to grid-scale deployments.
