Thermal battery ready for construction

Our first commercial thermal battery is in production. It will be made “only” of steel and the high-performance contrete Heatcrete®. This radical new technology helps industrial players, energy companies and various types of power plants to operate more energy-efficiently, more effectively (i.e. profits!) and to reduce CO2. Next, it will be transported to our Mebin manufacturing site in Europoort, Port of Rotterdam, for casting.

This view shows 63 thermal elements inside our TO6-7×9 steel cassette. Made of carbon steel piping, that works under pressure, and spirowound steel casing, they’re designed to be used with thermal oil as Heat Transfer Fluid (HTF). You can also see the spacers inside the spirowound casing, grabbing the piping, and ensuring that the piping remains in the right position during the next steps to follow: transport, casting and construction.
