Hackett Clinches $750,000 Deal For Redflow Batteries
Auckland-based Hitech Solutions has placed a second order for a major, multiple-stage project using Australian company Redflow’s ZBM2 batteries to build energy storage systems to power multiple remote sites in an unnamed Pacific Island nation.
The deal is Redflow’s largest ever for its ZBM2 zinc-bromine flow batteries, making a second international order worth about $750,000.
Hitech placed the order through Redflow partner Vertiv (formerly Emerson Network Power), a Redflow system integrator that has previously deployed ZBM2 batteries for telco-related energy storage systems in New Zealand and Australia.
Redflow CEO and major shareholder Simon Hackett said the latest sale validates the appeal of ZBM2 batteries against lead-acid batteries for network power applications in demanding and remote environments.
“This second major sale confirms the unique advantages of our zinc-bromine flow batteries for this high-workload deployment in the tropics,” he said.
“The ZBM2 excels in hot environments and for applications that require high cycle depth and cycle frequency, such as the deployment Hitech is undertaking.”
