Enerji joins hybrid solar thermal + waste heat project in WA

Enerji announces deal to co-develop outback WA hybrid solar thermal + storage plant that will also harvest waste heat from a fossil fuel power plant.

 

The energy in the Solastor tower – which is stored in high temperature graphite – can be recovered at any time by feeding a fluid into the receiver, where embedded heat exchangers extract the energy (usually as steam) and drive a steam turbine to produce electricity.

 

The project will also include an Opcon Powerbox: Swedish-made cogeneration technology that transforms waste heat into electricity – in particular targeting industrial, mining and power plants – for which Enerji has exclusive sales and distribution rights in Australia.
