Heatric actively collaborate with clients to develop solutions for the challenge of energy storage from renewables, and to overcome current supply and demand synchronisation issues. These include:
The close temperature approaches achieved by Heatric exchangers ensure minimal loss of energy between molten salt and other heat transfer fluids during charging and discharging cycles. Heatric has also developed a specialised procedure to diffusion bond Alloy 347 for this demanding application.
A further benefit to the close temperature approach achieved by Heatric exchangers is a reduction in both land and heliostat cost. This is achieved by using a lower molten salt temperature to produce the steam for power generation, reducing the number of heliostats required to heat the oil. This also allows a higher pressure steam to be generated in the boiler using the same temperature molten salt, therefore resulting in increased power output from the steam turbine.
The high pressure capabilities of Heatric exchangers combined with their effectiveness has placed the company at the forefront of Cryogenic Energy Storage technology. Heatric continues to work with partners to develop new systems for use in this exciting area.
