Great progress has been made recently, with the electrical installation of the TESS-IND now complete. As the commissioning process continues, we have been applying energy to the heat store, to achieve the anticipated target temperature of 1100 degrees C° by next weeks end. It is currently sitting at just below 800 degrees C°.

This will also enable the energy recovery system to be commissioned.

In addition to the progress of the TESS-IND, the new heat store lids for the GAS-TESS project have arrived on site at our Lonsdale premises. The electrical heating configuration of the GAS-TESS has been replaced with aperture openings, suitable for the gas burners.
