Vecco Group is developing the Vecco Critical Minerals Project. We are supporting the renewable energy and electrification transition by ensuring the global supply of High Purity Vanadium and High Purity Alumina remains available and affordable for energy storage applications.

Vecco Group’s business has two integrated platforms:

  1. Vanadium + HPA Mining - The “Vecco Project” located in NW QLD contains a large, high grade, shallow Vanadium and Alumina Resource. The project will produce both High Purity Vanadium and High Purity Alumina for the battery manufacturing process. A Pre-Feasibility Study is currently underway.
  2. Vanadium Electrolyte Production - Australia’s first commercial scale electrolyte facility for large scale vanadium batteries.

High Purity Vanadium is used in Vanadium Flow Battery (VFB) technology which provides long lasting, low cost storage of energy produced from renewable and sustainable generation. By producing a high grade vanadium electrolyte for vanadium batteries, Vecco will be supporting the renewable energy production and energy storage revolution.

Vanadium batteries offer a unique advantage as one of the lowest carbon footprint batteries on the market and the vanadium electrolyte is easily transferred to a new system after its 20-25 year asset life.

Our commitment is to supporting the significant uptake of large scale stationary storage (batteries) to deliver sustainable energy to everyone.

Vision and Strategy

Vecco Group was founded in 2014 by Managing Director Tom Northcott and has since developed one of the largest low cost vanadium projects in the world with a downstream electrolyte plant commencing operations in June 2023. Vecco is uniquely positioned to become one of the largest manufacturers of vanadium electrolyte in the Asia-Pacific region.


Vecco is developing a large battery metals and chemicals business supported by one of the lowest cost vanadium projects in the world.

A scoping study has been completed for the Vecco Project. Vecco is currently undertaking a Pre-Feasibility Study as it progresses towards developing the mine for extraction of High Purity Vanadium (HPV) and High Purity Alumina (HPA).

Vecco Group’s mission is to increase shareholder value through the near-term construction of Australia’s first vanadium electrolyte plant and development of the Debella V+HPA Mine.

The significant potential for vanadium as the world moves to lower emissions has captured the attention of many investors. Vecco provides investors with exposure to the low emissions energy sector through vanadium as the key mineral in vanadium flow batteries and HPA which is used in LED lighting and lithium-ion batteries.

Did you know:

  • Approximately 100t of Vanadium Pentoxide can make 10MWh of flow battery storage electrolyte
  • The vanadium in a flow battery never degrades and is completely recyclable
  • Vanadium is also used to increase the strength of steel and can lower emissions from the steel manufacturing process.
