Freeze and thaw: using ice-based technology 

Thermal storage allows ice to accumulate during one period, and then thaws it for use during another. Ice production for storage is mostly run during the night because of cheaper electricity.

Apart from giving substantial energy savings, an ice storage solution is space-efficient, usually requiring only a fraction of the space needed by conventional cooling systems. 

Cooling the world’s tallest building

Alfa Laval applies the latest technology to optimise our heat exchangers for thermal storage solutions. Our gasketed plate heat exchangers are used in ice storage systems worldwide, including one of the most innovative on the planet, which is cooling the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa, in Dubai.
