Trial of vanadium redox flow battery technology for water purification and pumping applications
- 5kW/30kWh vanadium redox flow battery (VRFB) to be installed to power a water purification chlorinator for Water Corporation WA.
- Water Corporation will also test the VRFB for use in pumping and other settings.
- Water Corporation is the principal supplier of water, wastewater, drainage and bulk irrigation services in Western Australia.
- Trial forms part of VSUN Energy rollout of systems demonstrating commercial and technical viability of VRFB in long duration energy storage and carbon footprint reduction through displacement of fossil fuel based systems.
