Under these agreements, the partners plan to place redT energy storage machines into their existing qualified pipeline of in total, more than 300 units, whilst making an initial commitment for 12 redT units overall. The partners will also provide maintenance and after-sales care to customers in their respective regions. This move will enable the Company to rapidly expand into these new markets alongside experienced and well respected partners.

redT has also recently made two senior hires within the Sales and Research & Development divisions. Bengt Stahlschmidt has joined as Global Business Development Lead, alongside Adam Whitehead who has joined as Research Principle.

Bengt was responsible for more than 16MWh of flow machine sales during his time at Austrian-based flow machine company Gildemeister, where he held the position of Head of Global Sales. With over 12 years experience in the energy sector, Bengt will work closely with the wider redT sales team on progressing and executing final stage customer contracts, in addition to strengthening the active customer pipeline outlined in the recent Operations Update.

Adam also joined the Company from Gildemeister, where he held the position of Head of Research. He assumes a key, senior role within redT’s Research & Development team and will work closely with the engineering team on further enhancing the performance of the Company’s patented energy storage technology. Adam is a leading authority within the flow machine industry with over 15 years experience in the space and during his time at Gildemeister, oversaw more than 1.5 millon hours of global machine operation. To date, he is responsible for over 30 patents relating to energy storage, has a Ph.D. and a B.A Honours degree in Chemistry, and is a Member of the Electrochemical Society (ECS) and the International Society of Electrochemistry (ISE).

redT also notes the recent opening of proceedings for insolvency by GILDEMEISTER energy storage GmbH. The Company has always held a great deal of respect for Gildemeister’s technology and staff and redT stands ready to assist with servicing and order fulfillment for any of their existing and potential customers who may be affected by recent developments.

Scott McGregor, CEO, redT energy commented:

“We are pleased to have attracted industry experts of the highest calibre in Bengt and Adam to join redT.   We have now assembled world class commercial and technical teams at redT, which combine the best talent from two global leaders in the vanadium energy storage space.
