Project update 2 – Yallalong Station

By July 7, 2020 July 24th, 2020 News, Off-grid, RBSS, Yallalong Station

Cattle mustering is over for another season – and Yallalong Station winds down to quieter times.

With fewer workers at the station there is less need for extra power to run fridges, air-con and other creature comforts in the remote Murchison location. And it’s this time of the year when the Redflow battery storage technology steps up – and where old chemistry batteries don’t make the grade.

By remotely logging into Yallalong’s Battery Management System (BMS) we can see that the system has put two of their four batteries into hibernation.

As you can see in the table below – Battery 1 has been Offline now for 10 days with a retained State of Charge (SoC) of 96.4%.

Battery 3 has been in Standby Power System mode (SPS) for 12 days with 100% State of Charge – this battery is ready and waiting to automatically come online if more power is required for any reason.

This ability to retain all stored energy when not in use and have it available at the flick of a switch, we believe, is one of the biggest advantages of zinc-bromine flow battery technology. Redflow zinc-bromine flow batteries can sit in standby for years at any charge capacity – fully charged to fully flat – and then be up and running again in a few seconds, ready to deliver its stored energy.

At RBSS, we believe this is true and real energy storage – and it’s this battery characteristic and technology, that gives the client assurance that they have made the right choice for their energy storage power requirements.
