  • Company: Kyoto utvikler en innovativ conteinerbasert løsning for termisk energilagring, for å generere damp etter behov i industrielle prosesser.

Kyoto Group is pleased to announce a quadrupling of the discharge capacity of its Heatcube thermal energy storage solution from 5 MW to 20 MW. The radical increase in discharge capacity reduces the Levelized Cost of Heat (LCOH) significantly for larger loads while expanding the Heatcube’s appeal to a broader customer base.

This is achieved without changing Heatcube design and is enabled by a new modular steam-generator system developed for Kyoto Group by the engineering partner Steinmüller Engineering of Germany, with whom Kyoto has entered into a collaboration agreement to supply the steam generator system for Heatcube.

The vertical design of the steam generator from Steinmüller enables perfect integration with the Heatcube design, while keeping the high energy density of our system, says Bjarke Buchbjerg, CTO at Kyoto Group. This long-term strategic collaboration is based on complementary expertise and provides an important step in the ongoing optimization of Heatcube, Buchbjerg concludes.
