Stryten Energy adds Storion’s VRFB storage technology to available suite of solutions

the assets of Storion energy, a vanadium redox flow battery (VRFB) technology company, were purchased by: Stryten energy, a provider of energy storage solutions. Storion’s VRFB technology is ideal for applications that require more than four hours of storage capacity to deploy clean energy from renewable sources such as solar and wind on demand. These applications include utility-scale storage, microgrids, and military bases.

“The Storion acquisition will add a power battery technology R&D facility to complement Stryten’s four North American R&D centers that focus on advanced lead and lithium energy storage solutions for our critical power customers , motive power, transportation, military and government,” said Mike Judd, President and Chief Operating Officer, Stryten Energy. “The combination of Stryten’s team of 2,500 employees and our more than 2 million square feet of manufacturing space brings the industrial resources needed to form a reliable supplier of long-life batteries designed and manufactured in the USA”

Storion’s proprietary VRFB design solves the energy-current trade-off for batteries. Batteries available today have the potential to provide standby power for extended periods of time when used at a fraction of the battery’s rated power. In contrast, Storion’s VRFB technology extends a battery’s ability to run for many hours without sacrificing power or the rate at which it can release energy, simply by adding more electrolytes to the system.

Storion’s VRFB combines multiple innovations to achieve breakthrough energy storage performance that enables extensive use of renewable energy sources, including:

  • Locally sourced vanadium that can be easily recycled
  • Increased power density and reduced battery downtime
  • Potential of unlimited life with proper maintenance
  • High temperature values ​​and thermally safe
  • Scalable to meet different energy storage capacity needs

“We are delighted to welcome the talented Storion team to Stryten Energy,” said Tim Vargo, Chief Executive Officer of Stryten Energy. “The clean energy transition in the US requires reliable battery solutions in multiple chemistries to meet the growing demand for renewable energy. The addition of Storion’s proprietary vanadium redox flow battery technology to Stryten’s Essential Power portfolio of energy solutions will expand our capabilities to solve our country’s current and future energy challenges, while positioning Stryten for success in the fast-growing long-term energy storage market. .”

Storion’s VRFB technology will expand the portfolio of Stryten’s newly formed Essential Power division, which provides a range of advanced lead and lithium battery technologies and services, including chargers and rack systems, used for backup power for the military and government , telecommunications, uninterruptible power supply (UPS), railways, utilities, microgrids and renewable markets with the addition of renewable energy storage capabilities.
