TNG to combine VRFBs into AGV Energy’s inexperienced hydrogen manufacturing technology

TNG has signed a new agreement with AGV Energy to collaborate on the proposed integration of vanadium redox flow batteries (VFRB) with AGV’s green hydrogen production technology. This will see the companies explore opportunities for the commercialisation of VRFB and technologies to produce green hydrogen. Under the agreement, both groups will progress formal commercial agreements for collaboration in three key proposed areas.
One of these will be the integration of VRFB into HySustain, including for its first commercial application initially at the Malaysian Green Hydrogen project. As well as this progression of opportunities for the rollout of HySustain in Australia and the rollout of VRFB in other commercial applications in Malaysia also are key areas the agreement will explore.

in conjunction with its partners, that produces green hydrogen and oxygen using electrolysis of demineralised water and renewable energy. This technology is well advanced based on the results from a test plant in Europe that is validating its operational and commercial feasibility with AGV in advanced discussions with potential hydrogen off-take partners in the Asia-Pacific region. AGV Energy is planning a phased rollout of scalable HySustain technology with the first commercial application planned at an advanced project in Malaysia.
Green hydrogen production is reliant on green electricity production from 100% renewable energy sources with AGV Energy intending to utilise purpose-built, project-specific solar farms to provide the green electricity required for HySustain. VRFB, which offers large, scalable and long-life energy storage for solar power generation, is AGV Energy’s preferred battery system for integration with HySustain.
Paul Burton, CEO and Managing Director at TNG, said, “We are very pleased to have secured this Heads of Agreement with AGV Energy, opening up an exciting pathway to collaborate with them on the development of their exciting green hydrogen HySustain technology. “HySustain is a great opportunity to showcase an integrated VRFB storage solution.
We also intend to work with AGV Energy on the potential rollout of HySustain in Australia, given the significant momentum within Australia and the resources industry to move towards a hydrogen-based economy.” Did you know H2 View is the only media publication to be recognised as an official partner of the Hydrogen Council?
