Bushveld Energy, IDC, Eskom to test first vanadium redox flow battery

Aim-listed Bushveld Minerals’ 84%-owned energy subsidiary Bushveld Energy has deployed its first utility-scale vanadium redox flow battery (VRFB) to power utility Eskom for testing. The power utility will, at its research, testing and development centre, in Rosherville, test the VRFB and its performance and applications under numerous simulations to validate the operational performance of energy storage systems in local conditions and to demonstrate the abilities and maturity of the VRFB for broad commercial use in South Africa and across the African continent.
