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

Kyoto Group announced today the successful Initial Operational Test of Heatcube, installed in Norbis Park at Nordjylland Power Station, Denmark.

The company have successfully demonstrated the operability of Heatcube and its capability to perform service as a heat storage system by absorbing power from the electrical grid, storing thermal energy in molten salt and delivering heat to the district heating system. The Initial Operational Test has confirmed the integrated functionality of the flow heater, circulation of salt, heat-tracing, steam-generator, air system, salt draining system and all safety functionality, thus confirming that Heatcube is now operational.

This achievement displays the effectiveness of our technology and paves the way for a future where industrial process heat is sourced from clean renewable electricity, enabling the industry to finally decarbonize, says Camilla Nilsson, CEO at Kyoto Group. The era of change is here, and we are proud to lead the charge towards a greener more prosperous future. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to our Chief Project Officer Agnieszka Sledz and her team for the successful installation and commissioning of Heatcube and to Nordjyllandsværket for the extraordinary collaboration.
