SaltX Technology - listed on Nasdaq First North- has entered a partnership agreement with the Australian company Calix Limited that develops pioneering technology for calcination processes. Together, the companies are now developing a charging reactor to optimize SaltX energy storage solution with new scalable technology to fit SaltX core technology and nanocoated salt.
The reactor will be installed at SaltX current pilot in Stockholm and a complete optimized storage solution will be possible to test and validate during 2021.
''We are thrilled to have a leading partner like Calix for optimizing SaltX EnerStore system further. Calix is a provider of first-class solutions and I am convinced that this is the start of a promising long- term collaboration. Furthermore, I am also proud that we now have secured a scalable technology for the charging equipment.'' says Carl-Johan Linér, CEO of SaltX Technology.
In December, SaltX announced the partnership with one of the leading providers of fluidized bed technologies, Sumitomo SHI FW, to construct a discharge reactor of 100kW for SaltX new pilot located in Stockholm.
'We are very pleased to be working with SaltX on its system which has great potential for load balancing applications as the grid de-carbonizes.' says Phil Hodgson, MD & CEO of Calix.
Calix now joins SaltX in the development of SaltX current pilot in Stockholm and will provide the energy storage solution with a charging reactor.
The new 200kW charging reactor is based on the design of Calix cutting-edge electrical flash calciner technology. The reactor will be adapted and optimized for charging SaltX nanocoated salt. Initial testing of the nanocoated salt has already been carried out at Calix lab facility with promising results.
The installation of the charging reactor will take place during the summer of 2021 and thereafter the pilot will be a complete system with both a discharging and charging reactor.The intention of the collaboration is to scale the technology further in a second phase.
