    January 28, 2022 - Contify Energy News


      DUISBURG, Jan. 27 -- Mitsubishi Power, Ltd. issued the following news release:

      Mitsubishi Power Europe and Kraftblock GmbH have signed a cooperation agreement for the design and implementation of high-temperature energy storage systems in order to facilitate sustainable energy in power plants and industrial heat applications. Using Mitsubishi Power Europe’s leading technology and Kraftblock’s thermal energy storage, both companies pursue the transition of existing power plants to generate green power and offer sustainable energy solutions for the industry.

      Kraftblock, based in Saarland, Germany, develops and produces an eco-friendly, cost-efficient thermal energy storage system that efficiently stores green heat. Kraftblock’s storage can deliver renewable heat for power plants, using the existing infrastructure of the plant such as turbine, grid access and district heating. The storage also optimizes energy processes in furnaces, can use waste heat and delivers green process heat.

      Mitsubishi Power Europe as a leading provider and innovator of technology and solutions for the energy and industrial sector, will take on the system integration of the energy storage units into existing plant systems, applying its longstanding experience and expertise in rehabilitation and upgrading of existing plant facilities.

      Both companies are committed to providing innovative solutions for a decarbonized power production. This storage technology is an important element in shaping the future of a cleaner and greener energy production and storage.

      Christian Kissling, Head of Sales at Kraftblock, comments: “We are very glad to have Mitsubishi Power Europe at our side as the perfect partner for this important step to reduce emissions. We share the same goal and vision: to provide reliable and sustainable energy in a safe and highly efficient way – now and for future generations.”

      Andreas Rupp, Head of Sales Business Unit Service, Mitsubishi Power Europe, adds: “We look forward to working together with Kraftblock. This technology meets our highest standards in terms of innovation and sustainability and will enable our customers to operate their existing facilities and plants in a much more eco-friendly way, making an important contribution to achieve the global decarbonization goals.”
