Site visit – Invinity Manufacturing Tour

Invinity has been building vanadium flow batteries in the UK, previously as redT Energy, since 2013 and today ships energy storage systems to a global customer base from its factory in Scotland. The company is pleased to invite tour guest to join us on a tour of a working vanadium flow battery manufacturing facility. Invinity’s product is a modular VFB, designed to ship to customer site fully factory tested and loaded with electrolyte. This allows the quick deployment of batteries to site in a range of sizes and configurations. Visitors will get a fascinating look at how this technology comes together in Invinity’s ISO-certified factories and processes.
