The TESS-IND 10MWh+ has a compact design for industries and residential developments requiring reliable electricity and heat energy on demand.
The first TESS-IND unit was commissioned at our research and development facility. TESS-IND storage
devices are to be commissioned at sites including a poultry processing facility and a packaging manufacturer.
The GAS-TESS 10MWh+ is designed to burn biogas and store the energy for recovery as electricity and heat for waste management utilities and entities requiring efficient gas management.
The first unit will be commissioned at the SA Water Glenelg Wastewater Treatment Plant in early 2019.
The TESS-GRID 200MWh+ is designed to store bulk energy at very high current flows and supply electricity and heat for long periods.
The device will provide energy security in electricity markets with substantial renewable generation.
Five connected 200MWh modules provide 1,000MWh (1GWh) of energy storage as part of an integrated solution for reliable renewable supply.
- Connected to a large renewable farm directly or through an electricity network.
- An industrial park with industries requiring process heat – greenhouse food producers, abattoirs or packaging manufacturers.
The TESS was commissioned in September 2016. The prototype is used as a test bed for refining our technology to ensure scalability and durability for the larger TESS-IND and TESS-GRID units.
The energy recovery system originally tested was a ‘Stirling’ motor, but this has been replaced by an externally gas fired turbine, both of which have operated successfully – highlighting the flexibility of our system.
