Cheesecake Energy approached Glacier Energy to supply heat exchangers for their “eTanker” project, the worlds greenest energy storage technology. The scope of work involved the full design, fabrication, assembly, inspection, testing and supply of bespoke hairpin-style shell and ‘U’ tube heat exchangers.
The energy storage technology, eTanker lowers the cost of medium to long-duration energy storage and turns renewable energy sources like wind and solar into reliable, on-demand power. Thermal and compressed air energy storage is used to achieve costs that are 30-40% lower than that of the cheapest batteries currently available.
Glacier Energy designed and manufactured 3 bespoke hairpin-style shell and ‘U’ heat exchangers for the eTanker project. The team designed and manufactured each heat exchanger using stainless-steel and in line with.
The stainless-steel heat exchangers have a 25-life span and were designed to ASME VII Div. I&ll & PED standards.
