Redflow Limited, a publicly-listed Australian company (ASX: RFX), produces small 10kWh zinc-bromine flow batteries that tolerate daily hard work in harsh conditions. Marketed as ZCell and ZBM2, Redflow batteries are designed for high cycle-rate, long time-base stationary energy storage applications in the residential, commercial & industrial and telecommunications sectors, and are scalable from a single battery installation through to grid-scale deployments. Redflow batteries are sold, installed and maintained by an international network of energy system integrators. Redflow’s smart, self-protecting batteries offer unique advantages including secure remote management, 100 per cent daily depth of discharge, tolerance of high ambient temperatures, a simple recycling path, no propensity for thermal runaway and sustained energy delivery throughout their operating life.

 

Redflow CEO Simon HackettAustralian energy storage specialist Redflow Limited today announces that it has extended the warranty for its 10 kilowatt hour (kWh) ZBM2 and ZCell zinc-bromine flow batteries to 10 years.

Previously, Redflow warranted the electrode stack in its batteries for 10 years or 36,500 kilowatt hour (kWh) output, whichever came first, and for three years for auxiliary components such as electrolyte tanks and pumps.

Redflow’s entire battery is now covered by the 10-year/36,500kWh warranty, which aligns it with emerging industry standard warranties for residential and commercial energy storage systems.

Redflow CEO Simon Hackett said the 10-year warranty showed the company’s commitment to quality. “This assures customers that Redflow batteries are a long-term proposition,” he said.

“What makes Redflow’s 10-year warranty such outstanding value is that our zinc-bromine flow batteries sustain their 10 kWh of storage capacity for that entire 10 years, rather than losing capacity over time, as occurs with lithium-based and lead-acid batteries.”

Redflow’s latest approved ZCell installers are SSE Systems in the ACT;Riverina Complete Solar in Griffith, NSW; Country Solar NT in the Northern Territory; Apex Communication Technologies and Sustainable Works, both in SA; Veida in Victoria; and Green Gateway in WA. Redflow now has a total of 12 installers offering services in every state and territory of Australia. 

ASX-listed Redflow last month told shareholders at its Annual General Meeting that it had received strong demand for its ZCell residential battery, with orders from installers Australia-wide, including one for 48 ZCells, worth about $600,000 from Standard Solar in Melbourne. Through in-country business partners, Redflow has also seen multi-unit deployments of its ZBM2 commercial batteries at a factory in South Africa and a telecommunications tower in New Zealand. 

Redflow CEO Simon Hackett said each approved installer had undertaken ZCell-specific training which extended their existing expertise and experience of installing energy storage systems.

As the electricity grid shut down to protect itself during a fierce storm, two Redflow batteries at the Hackett house continued to operate, providing it with electricity, without missing a beat.

At last week’s Redflow AGM, Mr Hackett said the two ZBM2 batteries had worked as intended. “They kept our lights on as the rest of the state was plunged into darkness,” he said.
