In the last months, SINTEF developed a lubrication free turbo-compressor for the steam heat pump of the FRIENDSHIP system. The designed compressor prototype allows temperature lifts of up to 30 Kelvin in a single stage compression and was dimensioned to a capacity range of around… Read More »Compressor Prototype For The Heat Pump Is Installed!
As explained here, the initial concepts about the heat pump and its integration into SHIP200 are being investigated. Also, evaluations of different heat pump concepts, component, and system TRL level and cost have been performed. Furthermore, Modelica was used for detailed investigation of both design… Read More »More on the heat pump concepts
