V-KOR Storage Systems

V-KOR Storage Systems

Through its affiliate PROKOR, Protean Energy has access to state of the art energy storage systems in the form of a vanadium redox flow battery. The V- KOR range of batteries has been developed over the last ten years and the technology is protected by a suite of patents with some patents still pending. Details of the flow battery technology can be found here.

V-KOR Battery Testing and Trials

PROKOR has developed a suite of V-KOR batteries ranging from 2kW to 50kW. The units are today being laboratory cycle tested to confirm the performance characteristics of each unit. The below shows a 50kW/200kWh unit being tested at the Korean Conformity Laboratories (KCL) in conjunction with a 20kW solar array. This test has been in progress for many months and will continue for the foreseeable future to provide invaluable information concerning the product development for the commercial production models.
