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
