Heaten: signs production agreement for HeatBooster

  • Date: March 11, 2022

  • Company: Heaten develops and produces megawatt-scale industrial heat pumps with very high temperatures, which can recover heat that is traditionally lost in processes to various industrial customers.

Heaten selected AVL Schrick, the largest independent motor development company in the world, to work on the detail design, layout design as well as providing their experience in lubrications and sealing for their Heat Pump System HeatBooster.

We will soon see a milestone in Heat Pump technology on the market that enables the industry to further improve process efficiencies, says Roger Wildemann, CEO at AVL Schrick GmbH. We are proud to be working with the inspiring team from Heaten on a technology that results in a reduced CO2 footprint and contributes to a sustainable future, Wildemann concluded.

The first HeatBooster will be a 1 MW heat pump, but the range will eventually be expanded up to 6 MW. AVL has the capacity to run a small series production and the company is getting ready to build the first two HeatBoosters, the first of which will be delivered to a customer in the Netherlands. With AVL Schrick, Heaten AS has found a strong partner which combines experienced engineering knowledge with turn-key assembly and testing capabilities, says Peter P. Breithaupt, CEO at Heaten.

Heaten’s heat pump is based on an efficient, durable and highly flexible piston technology. It successfully delivers heat with process temperatures up to 165 ° C. The HeatBooster is based on a proven technology platform and is adapted to market with a great need for heat in the temperature range 100-200° C. One of the many advantages with a piston based compressor is that the technology is optimized toward series production as piston machines have been built for over 100 years. The technology is well developed and has solutions that are highly flexible, efficient, and scalable.
