Manufacturer and integrator redT has been given a provision notice from Pivot Power to manufacture the 2MW / 5MWh of vanadium redox flow batteries as part of the Energy Superhub Oxford project, striking up a partnership with vanadium producer Bushveld Minerals to support the project.
The flow batteries are to be hybridised alongside lithium-ion battery storage, which is to be provided by Wärtsilä. Developer Pivot Power announced it had signed a contract with Wärtsilä for two 50MW lithium-ion batteries last month, one of which forms part of the Energy Superhub Oxford project and the other is to be located at a separate site in Kent, south of London.
Bushveld Minerals Limited (LON:BMN), together with its subsidiaries, engages in the exploration and development of mineral projects in South Africa. It operates through three segments: Vanadium and Iron Ore, Coal Exploration, and Vanadium Mining and Production.
