Vanadium Redox Battery
Pangea will combine intelligent energy storage management with control technologies and vanadium redox flow batteries thereby creating a hybrid system that is ideal for utility scale storage.
The vanadium battery has a relatively long asset life (>20,000 cycles).
The vanadium battery stores charge in tanks, thereby reducing the prospect of over-heating or thermal runaway.
The vanadium battery can access 100% depth of discharge without being damaged.
The vanadium battery can be handled safely because its electrolyte is non-toxic, and the contained metal can be 100% reclaimed and re-used elsewhere.
Investing in the Future
Developed over 79 hectares in Port Augusta, South Australia, Pangea will develop this utility scale battery along with a 50MW solar photovoltaic farm.
Pangea will invest around USD 200 million into project, stimulating the local economy, creating direct and indirect jobs, and supporting the aspirations of Port Augusta to be a renewable energy hub.
