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

In the week of 25th to 29th October, representatives from the Kyoto management team visited our partner Contratos y Diseños Industriales S.A in Barcelona. The visit included technical discussions and a visit to the manufacturing site where the Heatcube tanks are nearly ready to be filled with molten salt.

To meet the team and see the physical tanks in manufacturing confirms that we have established strong partnerships to bring the Heatcube to the market as an efficient, modular and highly scalable solution for decarbonizing industrial heating, said Christopher Kjølner, CEO at Kyoto. CyD, which is in charge of building the tanks for the Heatcube, specializes in industrial assembly, detailed engineering and construction of special equipment and prefabrications with high technical requirements including thermal storage solutions and molten salt. By working together to create the tanks for the Heatube, we are part of a highly innovative project to provide heat to industrial users at scale through clean, renewable energy, says Sergio Dávila Borraz, Global BDM at CyD.

Each tank constructed fits in a 20 ft container. The tanks are the largest parts of the Heatcube structure, so being able to inspect the finished tanks feels like a very big step for the construction process, says Bjarke Buchbjerg, CTO in Kyoto. Thermal batteries hold the potential to significantly reducing coal and natural gas as part of the energy mix. Now we are eager to fully demonstrate our capability to deliver clean renewable heat energy to industrial users, Buchbjerg concludes.
