EnerVault, a designer and manufacturer of long-duration, grid-scale energy storage systems, and NORAM, a specialized engineering and process design firm, have reached a collaborative agreement to scale production and commercialize EnerVault's iron-chromium redox flow batteries.

In January, EnerVault says it began commissioning a 250 kW iron-chromium redox flow battery. The company adds that the system is capable of delivering 1 MWh of stored energy.

According to EnerVault, the energy storage system, located in Turlock, Calif., is sited on agricultural land in combination with a ground-mounted solar array and will begin operation in the spring.

"With NORAM's expertise in system design for simplicity, reliability and safety, we expect EnerVault's long-duration, grid-scale energy storage systems to meet the capital cost and energy delivery cost targets established by the U.S. Department of Energy," notes EnerVault CEO Jim Pape.
