Thermal storage & exchange system consists of hot and cold salt tanks, heat exchanger, tubes, instruments, electric tracing, heat preserver and other auxiliary systems. The salt tank can store high-temperature molten salt to exchange with water through heat exchanger to produce superheated steam for high-quality power generation.
SUPCON SOLAR can provide not only integrated thermal equipment and solutions, which have been proved on utility-scale projects, but also thermal process package customized per client’s request.
