A vanadium redox flow battery will be installed at a Western Australian caravan park in the new year. Supplied by VSun Energy, the installation is advances their parent company’s vanadium endeavours.
A 5kW/30kWh vanadium redox flow battery has been ordered from the Singaporean manufacturer V-Flow Tech and will be installed in the Beverly Caravan Park in WA’s wheatbelt region. Paired with a 6 kW of solar system, the vanadium flow battery will be fitted once it arrives in state in June 2021.
The system was commissioned by the Shire of Beverley council, who own the caravan park and are looking to extend its powered sites. VSun Energy’s Business Development Manager, Samantha McGahan, told pv magazine Australia the company was approached by the council, who wanted to use a vanadium flow battery because it is non-flammable and has longer duration.
