All too often in industry valuable high temperature heat from batch processes in furnaces, kilns etc comes in stops and starts. Processes to transform this waste heat into valuable electricity such as Organic Rankine cycle (ORC) rely on constant input, leading to further wastage.
Storing waste heat and turning it to power with our storage system is the missing link towards a better solution, enabling constant electricity production using ORC from waste heat. This innovative approach means reducing plant and electricity costs and increasing independence from the grid.
(1) Waste heat recovery unit at the furnace provides volatile heat to the ThermalBatteryTM via thermal oil
(3) The ThermalBatteryTM is discharged via the thermal oil loop to the ORC system, which produces constant clean electricity to be provided to the customer facility
Reduce your company’s carbon footprint by producing clean electricity for your consumption, replacing still partially grey electricity from the grid.
Harness increased security of supply, with n-1 redundancy of electricity production for some core production assets.
Off the shelf flue gas to thermal oil heat exchanger available from different suppliers for all ranges of flow-rates, temperatures, flue gases and thermal capacities.
Thermal-Oil-BOP-package including piping, pumps, expansion vessel, valves and instrumentation. Depending on customer requirement also independent distributed control system (DCS).
ORC-System designed by our industrial partner Turboden with up to 20MWel exceeding 20% gross electric efficiency.
