Australian battery company Redflow Limited will start manufacturing battery components at its new factory in Thailand next month, the company Chairman Brett Johnson told today’s 2017 Annual General Meeting in Brisbane.
“We are expecting to commence the initial manufacture of components for our electrode stacks during December and are on-track to have manufactured our first complete electrode stack by the end of January 2018,” Mr Johnson told shareholders at the AGM.
“These new stacks will be shipped to Brisbane where they will be installed on approximately 200 tank sets (without stacks) which were manufactured by Flex. These complete batteries will be tested and supplied to customers to meet existing and new orders.
“While our initial focus will be on the manufacture of stacks for these existing Flex tank sets, we will progressively validate high quality components and sub-assemblies until ultimately producing complete, fully tested batteries in our Thai factory. This milestone is planned for June 2018. We will then be able to ramp-up production in Thailand in line with customer demand. Once fully operational and orders warrant it, the manufacturing line should be able to manufacture up to 250 complete batteries a month.
“Should demand increase beyond that volume, the capital cost involved to establish a second manufacturing line is not problematic.”
