Launch of thermal battery manufacturing hub

Launch of thermal battery manufacturing hub

Together with HeidelbergCement, we have launched a manufacturing hub for supplying our thermal battery to the European market. Located strategically in Europoort, Port of Rotterdam, the site will produce the ready-to-use battery modules at a fully automated RMC plant operated and owned by Mebin.

Pre-fabricated module cassettes are cast with Heatcrete®, cured and quality controlled, before being transported directly to project sites for final assembly. The structure provides a consolidated platform for facilitating higher volume output and securing all quality aspects to accommodate the widely expected market growth for energy storage solutions for years to come.

Our VP Supply Chain Jon E. Bergan states that “the manufacturing setup we have established with our partners HeidelbergCement and Mebin is a critical step for the successful roll-out of this important technology, and consequently, contributing to improved energy usage and reducing carbon emissions in the European industrial landscape at a much faster rate”.

Volker Klapperich, Product Manager Civil Engineering at HeidelbergCement, says “expanding our footprint into this green, high potential market is an exciting new opportunity for the HeidelbergCement group”.
