India: New Solar-Biomass Cold Storage and Power Generation System

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on July 30, 2012

One of the leading solar solution providers in India, Thermax, has just implemented a so-called solar-biomass hybrid demonstration project at the Solar Energy Centre in northern India. The cold storage and power generation system is the first of its kind worldwide. It comprises of a 15 kW (~5 tons of refrigeration) Thermax Vapour Absorption Machine (VAM), coupled with a field of Thermax SolPac D160 solar thermal tracking concentrators, as well as a 50kWel biomass gasifier system. The VAM uses both the heat energy from the solar parabolic concentrators and the waste heat from the biomass gasifier to cool the storage chamber.

India: Innovative Solar Cooling System at Solar Energy Centre

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on August 10, 2011

 Solar air conditioning demonstration system” The Solar Energy Centre in Haryana State can now score with a new and innovative solar air conditioning demonstration system: Developed by Thermax, one of India’s leading waste heat recovery and cooling manufacturers, the system with a 100 kW cooling capacity has an integrated triple-effect Vapour Absorption Chiller (VAC) and solar parabolic concentrators. Both components were developed locally through a 15-month cooperative application research by the Advanced Research Centre for Powder Metallurgy and New Materials (ARCI), the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur (IITK) - both from India -, and the German ISE Fraunhofer Institute.
