Thermal Energy Storage
For over 30 years, DN Tanks has designed and built prestressed concrete tanks for stratifying and storing chilled water for the Thermal Energy Storage (TES) process. Every single one of these tanks is watertight and still operational today.
WHAT IS TES?
Thermal Energy Storage is a technology that allows thermal energy to be collected for later use. DN Tanks specializes in designing and building TES tanks that integrate seamlessly into any chilled water district cooling system or at college campuses, military bases, government facilities, power plants, and industrial/commercial facilities.
HOW DOES TES WORK?
Thermal Energy Storage is a proven technology with three decades of successful installations. TES tanks are the reservoirs used to store energy in chilled water district cooling systems. These specialty tanks are insulated and designed with special internal “diffuser” systems. That ensures that the water stratifies within the tank during the charging and discharging of chilled water.
Reduces annual energy and operational costs.
Improves the efficiency and power output of natural gas electrical power generators.
Expands the cooling capacity of an existing facility.
Provides owners with a negotiation tool in regulated and deregulated utility markets.
