Converting heat into multiple applications
ALSOLEN products electricity during day and night
Electricity is generated through either an Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) or a turbine depending on the thermal solar power plant.
Thanks to the relay provided by the thermal energy storage system, electricity can be produced not only during daylight hours but also after sunset.
Therefore, the times at which electricity is produced comply with industrial or urban profile consumption.
The high ratio of electricity availability and the quality of the supplied power ensure a valuable potential for selling electricity on smart-grids.
The main applications are:
- Supplying electricity on isolated or semi-isolated grids
- Replacing diesel generators
Multi Effect Distillation (MED) perfectly adapted to our solutions
Water desalination is another ALSOLEN’s power plants application obtained by optimizing the available heat.
Multi-Effect Distillation (MED) is the ideal process for this application.
There is a wide range of possibilities:
- Drinking water
- Washing water
ALSOLEN, from ice to air conditioning
Refrigeration is a basic need for human being. Heat can be converted into cold. ALSOLEN has chosen the absorption chillers technology to make it possible.
Cold production combined with the other utilities is essential to optimize costs.
The applications fields are:
- Cold water or fresh air to be used by:
- District cooling for air conditioning
ALSOLEN is competitive for industrial applications
The heat produced by the solar field can be directly used for a large spectrum of industrial processes.
The following examples are possible applications:
- Generating heat for electricity power stations (solar boost)
- Enhanced Oil Recovery, EOR
- Industrial drying
- Heating and pre-heating
