Redflow completes battery stacks at new Thai plant

Australian battery company Redflow has completed the first ZBM2 batteries using battery stacks made by its new Thailand factory as it readies for shipment to customers.

At Redflow’s Brisbane headquarters, the Thai-made battery stacks were installed on existing ZBM2 battery "tank sets" and connected to performance-testing equipment.

Redflow says that after passing pre-delivery tests, the complete batteries are now scheduled for delivery.

And Redflow will continue to assemble, test and deliver limited quantities of ZBM2 batteries with Thai-produced battery stacks until it starts end-to-end manufacturing and testing of complete batteries in Thailand by June.

Redflow chief executive Richard Aird said completing ZBM2 batteries with Thai-made battery stacks was an important milestone.

“Our first requirement of the new factory is quality components, which it is now producing in the electrode stack – the most complex and critical part of our product.

“Our pre-delivery tests have confirmed that these complete batteries, using Thai-made stacks and existing battery tank sets, perform to standard, so we are now scheduling deliveries to start supplying outstanding back orders.”
