The sun has incredible power. Especially south of the 45th latitude, Concentrated Solar Thermal (CST) power using parabolic through systems will be among the cheapest technologies to produce carbon-free industrial process heat.
But without storage, customers are left with a cold dark night ahead. Turning solar thermal to steam is the technology of choice to best utilize CST assets, recycling excess energy for steam production – enabling true decarbonization.
(1) ThermalBatteryTM is charged from collector field via the thermal oil-loop during noontime hours
(3) The ThermalBatteryTM is discharged via the thermal oil loop to the steam generator to supply steam on demand
More value for money with thermal storage technology compared to oil tanks and molten salt storage.
Low maintenance cost and complexity due to the ThermalBatteryTM core being maintenance-free and requiring less to no OPEX.
Enabling full decarbonization of production site and best utilization of CST assets.
Limited exposure by producing energy on site and hence dramatically reduced risk of increasing cost for gas and CO2.
Thermal-Oil-BOP-package including piping, pumps, expansion vessel, valves and instrumentation. Depending on customer requirement also independent distributed control system (DCS).
