West Coast Power generally uses third party products from reputable manufacturers. The products are selected by taking technical, economic and environmental criteria into consideration. Design, supply, integration and commissioning are part of our core services. West Coast Power also develops, produces and distributes its own energy storage units in the lower power capacity range.
Here are two important products mentioned:
The West Coast Power Water Management Unit is an actively-controlled stratified storage tank and is used to store thermal energy. The storage medium is water. The application is designed primarily for small to medium sized buildings.
The West Coast Power Hydrogen package is used to store and deliver electrical energy. The storage medium is hydrogen. The production of hydrogen is done by means of electrolysis. The reconversion of hydrogen into electricity may be completed in two ways:
- Condensing technology
- Combustion in a miniature gas turbine
Furthermore, a direct use of hydrogen for mobile drive solutions is also an option.
